Finished 1st Irish dance wall quilt
The journey to finish this wall quilt was a long one, and took me just over a year to finish. Even though this was a very busy year for my family, I am pleased with the results and I’m eager to get started on the second and now that I know all of the twist and turns of the first one I’ll be able to bypass a lot of problems I ran into.
What’s on the back of the quilt
There is an Irish blessing and prayer. I’ve sewn a small pocket for special letters from a mother to a daughter.
May the dreams you hold dearest be those which come true. And the kindness you spread keep returning to you.
May the raindrops fall lightly on your brow. May the soft winds freshen your spirit. May the sunshine brighten your heart. May the burdens of the day rest lightly upon you. And God enfold you in the mantle of his love.
From Beginning to End in pictures
Next week after I finish up a dress I started a long time age, I’ll start work on the second quilt. I also have to say that my friend who I’ve been sewing this quilt for her daughters, has been very patient and when I showed her what the final result was she was over joyed. This has made me very happy and I can’t wait to get started on the next one, which will be the last one for me to make.
