>INSPIRATION for a hobby!!!!!

This quilt was the beginning! I made it for my granddaughter. I really had no idea how to do it, cutting pieces one at a time with scissors and sewing them together. I found a pattern on the internet and just went from there.
This one is tied rather than quilted.
I had always liked the Irish Chain pattern, and have made several more and variations on it since.
I have learned how to use many techniques to simplify cutting, piecing, construction and even learned to quilt on the machine and by hand since I made this one, however, this Irish Chain proved that I could make a quilt using the time honored traditional techniques.
