Traci’s Version of the Easy Black and White Quilt

Not too long ago I received an email from a lady wishing to know how much fabric she needed to buy to make the Easy Black and White Quilt Pattern that I have for free on Fabric Mom. (Apparently I forgot to put this in the instructions.) So sorry friends. I asked her to share a picture of the finished quilt with me when she was finished. I got another email the other day with the finished quilt. It is beautiful. I asked her if I could share her quilt story with the photo on Fabric Mom. I was delighted when she said yes. Here is Traci’s Quilt and her story:

“I just started sewing/quilting in March of 2011. I started making my quilt in the class I was taking but got the flu so was unable to finish. I got frustrated on my own so took a break. Then I found your pattern for the black and white quilt, and decided to make that for a wedding gift for my sister in law. So I used red and gold, their colors, and finished my first quilt! I love it and am so happy that I could do that for her and her new husband. It took me about two weeks, would’ve been one week but I have a two year old son! Plus a husband who is going to college part time and working full time. Everyone at the wedding reception signed it and it looks beautiful!”
Thanks much,
Traci

Traci, I love it! You did a wonderful job. I see many more beautiful quilts in your future.

Double Irish Chain Revisited

I recently had an email in my inbox from a lovely lady who wanted to know the name of the pattern for this quilt.

It is called a Double Irish Chain. I originally made it for my mother in a queen size. She bought a bigger bed and it didn’t fit so she sent it to my brother. I hope he is keeping warm under this beauty.
