Finish It Friday: Chain Link

Last week I stopped in my local quilt shop and saw this on the counter. It's the newest issue of Modern Patchwork.
It was exciting to see it out in the wild. Because...on page 52...
is Chain Link!

Here are some closer shots. Taken in my backyard.

I'm so happy with this quilt. I used a lovely set of fat eighths from Cherrywood.

This was not my original plan for setting the blocks. But thanks to a lovely weekend with Elizabeth, we played around with the blocks on her living room floor and she helped me come up with this setting. Quilting friends are the BEST!

On the subject of quilting friends, Anne Diester's pillows are on the cover! This is Anne's second time as a cover girl. She is crazy talented so I hope you will check out her blog if you haven't been there before.

Anne and I are going to be roomies at QuiltCon, and the thought of meeting her in person and spending a weekend together makes me so happy.

I'm linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF. Have a great weekend!

I just want you to know I am jumping up and down on my SIL's bed as whoop and holler in excitement for your publication of that fabulous quilt (the photos don't do it justice). Okay, maybe I'm not jumping up and down in reality, but I am inside--way to go!! I'm happy to help any time with your amazing ideas and quilt projects, and even happier to see the world get to see them. Congratulations!!
