Irish Chain

This Irish Chain was made by Peggy Y. for her daughter's wedding.  The bride to be choose the Celtic designs that are in each of the white areas.  One is a cross and the other is a knot that kind of looks like hearts.

It start off with putting the design in the space, then I filled it in with background quilting.
I quilted a straight line and CC (continuous curves) in the "chain" part of the quilt. 
 A classic cable was quilted in the green and a feathered cable quilted in the 2 purple borders.
 Then I added a line of pearls in the white sashing.

I quilted their initials in one block.

When this quilt was hanging, it just glowed!  I hope the bride and groom like it!
