Quilt basting party
I knocked this pattern off from a picture I saw on Pinterest over a year ago. If I remember right, the quilt I saw was intended to be a fancy Irish chain, but I thought it looked more like a modernized, embellished Double Wedding Ring.
I was not up for making a queen-sized bed quilt, so this quilt is a twin size. The top finished at about 62" by 92". I figure it will be perfect for the newlyweds to cuddle under on the couch, or they can use it as a guest bed quilt.
My mom helped me spray-baste the quilt. It turns out our empty spare bedroom is perfect for quilt-basting. Since then I've been slowly chipping away at the quilting. I can't wait to get it done so I can finally send it to our friends (maybe it'll be a combined Christmas and belated wedding gift!).
