A 10 year old project finally done!

This has been a work in progress for FAR too long! It has been a series of indecisions all along the way. I started it clear back in 2002! YIKES!

My long arm had been down for 3 months and put me far behind. I was able to do smaller projects while waiting. And now she is back and I finished 10 quilts on there.  My Quilt Show is this Saturday, so I don't know if I will have time to get them posted until after the show.  But I did want to share this one.

This was designed my me, EPP by me, pieced by me and hand quilted by my Amish friend, Mary and her daughter and their 'hen party' friends!  In 3 weeks!

Grandma's Irish Chain

I decided to do a GIANT hexie flower on the back...

and just because I wanted to try 1/4" hexies...

I hope to post the other quilts next week. I finally feel productive again!  But sure have a sore back now!   :)
