Misty Irish Morning - A Finish!


One UFO down ... "too many to want to count" to go ... ;)

Almost three years in the making.  This was Jess Smith of the Quilt & Needle's Summer Mystery 2009 pattern ... and one of my very favorites.  You may purchase this pattern here ...

Misty Irish Morning

It is made from Jess's kit with no personal changes from the original pattern or fabrics. 


As many of you may know I like to tinker with fabrics and patterns, but not this time.  I started piecing this quilt during the Mystery Weekend and it took me a few extra days to complete the beautiful  Irish Chain border.  

Then it had to wait in the stack of finished tops for me to machine quilt at my favorite LQS over a year ago.  Here is a close up of the quilting on the backing fabric.



I finally finished the hand sewing on the binding last Sunday.
 
I am giving my son, Matt, this quilt on Mother's Day
