The original Double Irish Chain

If you've started at the top, go down one blog post to "Island Chain" for Joy and David.  That explains this quilt.  Suffice it to say, it was 2003, and I was a new quilter. 

I wanted to do something pretty in the background blocks, and even did a quilt called "Practice Makes Better" before I quilted this one.  As you can see, my practice didn't really help. Okay, so quilting on my domestic sewing machine vs on my wonderful APQS Millennium probably helps too.  Also 11 years of quilting practice between the two projects. 

I'm currently working on hand quilting a whole cloth quilt to replace this one.  It's going to be SO much better than this, but this has certainly served it's purpose for the time it's been here and will be here.
