   Double Irish Chain in Indigo and White


This exquisite Double Irish Chain is pieced both by hand and by machine. Some of the most diminutive quilting stitches I have ever seen cover the entire quilt. A contrasting border quilting is on the diagonal, in a 3/8 inch parallel line. The border brings this quilt to a higher level of sophistication. The indigo squares measure approx. 1-3/4 inches. The double border measures 10-1/4 inches. The same fabric is used to create a 1/4" binding all executed by hand. Quilting executed in the white squares varies from diagonal, horizontal and/or cross hatching. How wonderful to have a quilt that will easily fit today's queen size bed. In apparently unused condition and professionally hand washed by Betsey.
