June’s UFO completed!

 

I’m delighted to report UFO progress in June! 

Several years ago a friend gave me her mother’s scrapbag full of many tiny pieces from the days of sewing clothing for her family.  I added a few other vintage fabrics and stitched a lap-sized Irish Chain quilt top.

When I learned that my friend was moving away I decided to finish the quilt for her to take along.  The white spaces seemed to call out for a bit of feather quilting.
