Solids Quilt top finally done

I've just finished piecing my Diamond Chain Quilt. It was hard going at times and I was thinking about shelving it for a while, which would have been a first for me. But I stuck at it and am delighted with the results. Next thing is how to quilt it, I'm not at all sure on this one.

I was in town on Wednesday looking at fabric for Sophie's Communion dress. While there I picked up a few bits and bobs. As you do. I went to Hickey's, Murphy Sheehy & A. Rubenesque.

The last fabric is for making cushions for my couch, the deep purple is for piping, if I decide to give it a go. If not, it won't go to waste.

Have a good weekend.


  1. I love the quilt top! Hand quilting maybe? And what great purchases. Nice to see some lovely Tilda there.

  2. Hmmm.....hadn't realised that Irish Communions were SO different to English ones! None of the fabrics you picked out would be considered suitable for Sophie's Communion dress, over here! Lol! xx

  3. I wouldn't have thought you can get cute fabric like that at Hickey's. Will have to look again.

    Your quilt is simply incredible. Absolutely eye catching.

  4. Some lovely fabrics there - I love the colours!
