Maiden commercial quilting experience!

My Mum recently sent off her beautiful 1930's single Irish chain quilt to a commercial long arm quilter. We have always quilted our own quilts with simple straight lines. Nervously awaiting it's return, we picked it up yesterday & were delighted with the result. It is stippled all over which accentuates the coloured chains ...and has beautiful feathers on the border. I will post some better photos when it is bound. The fabrics left over from this quilt are being used by Mum to do her Quilt-a-long blocks.

Half way there ...

This is Mum's sixth block of twelve in Amandajean's Quilt-a-long. And here are all six blocks so far. Looking good Mum - keep up the pace!
