This quilt was made from a traditional pattern called Double Chain, which was printed in 1881 in Godey’s Ladies Book. It is fairly simple to piece, once you figure out the best way to lay your patches to avoid piecing confusion. It uses the partial piecing technique, which is fairly simple in this case. This made a nice dent in my stash of light and dark blue scraps!
The quilting design is called Along the Way, by Anne Bright. It was done in a dark turquoise thread which gave nice definition and texture to the quilt.
This quilt won Grand Champion, Machine Quilting at the 2014 Caledon Fair and the 2015 Drayton Fair. It won second place at the District 7 competition in 2015. It now goes to Michael and Rory for their wedding quilt.
