My brother has a new great granddaughter! So she gets a quilt. I've been wanting to make an Irish chain, and it's so simple and quick that here is my chance.
After I finished it, as I was sewing on the binding, I realized that the colors were similar to a quilt that my paternal grandmother made for me in the 1950's. That quilt went with me to college, was on my bed for a long while, and welcomed my granddaughter when she moved from the east coast to the Pacific Northwest. Lots of history here in these two.
The baby quilt is made of prints, my original pink quilt is solid. So, here is represented six generations: From my grandmother to my great, great grand niece! Makes me smile.
