An older quilt

 Good morning!  Yesterday, when I was looking for heart quilts, I found this quilt.  Back in the day, I used to hand quilt everything.  My stitches were teeny weeny...and I don't think I can make them that small now!!  The texture of this worn quilt is soft and cuddly, and I think that is what draws me to it.
Here is a close up...this is a great one for using 2 inch squares up!!   I would like to remake this one, bigger though!!

I hope you have a wonderful Saturday, everyone!!

I like the way the stars go out into the border. Very nice quilt!

What a great pattern, Irish chain with stars? Looks like a great scrap buster, thanks for sharing.

That's a very pretty pattern. Never saw stars in an Irish chain before. Your own pattern? It is lovely. Thanks for sharing.

I was just going to say I love the way the stars overlap the border, but I see someone else said it first - still true though! Gorgeous colours in that one, and just adore the hearts quilt below too. xCathy
