chain link

i guess i can say i'm the first generation quilter in my family. i've been teaching my mom everything that i learn and am amazed at how far she's gone w/ a little (okay, it was a hard shove) push.

and so, with that, the quilt that i have was for our wedding from a family friend. my mom has one in the hand quilting phase with hawaii elvis that i'm still waiting on. pst, dont tell her, but i think i'll pro'lly finish mine first....dang it.

so...with that in mind...

this is a project i'm working on for the ol man and me. chain link from Link to the 30's

haha, i realized the quilt was going to fit the top part of the king size i needed to adjust it and add more blocks...'bout 26 more. oh darn, guess i'll have to go back and get more reprint fabrics :)

so here's the block in it's pre-sewn form...can you belive it, i actually had the grand ol idea to hand sew ALL the pieces (they did it in the 30's, why couldn't i?), no, maybe i'll just hand quilt it instead :) haha

it's funny how i've got this one i'm so anxious and excited to do....when i've got so much more that i had already started and are waiting to be finished....just off the top of my head...

-grandfolk's golden double wedding ring
-hurricane lu's dresden flower quilt
-jefe's salsa lonestar quilt
-momala's mother's day '08 to machine quilt

friojles man...we better hurry and find a house to fit all the ufos! :)
