I made this quilt from the pattern "Starry Irish Chain" (Quiltmaker #84, March/April 2002). It was made in celebration of my son's college graduation, May 2009. He is an avid collector of nutcrackers. His collection numbers over 100. I renamed the quilt "Nutcracker Sweet". Machine pieced and hand quilted. The white blocks have a continous holly leaf quilting pattern that I devised.

Gosh, this looks familiar.  Guess that's because I'm personal friends with the maker and the recipient!

Great quilt! Where did you find the fabric? My son-in-law collects nutcrackers as well.

love it!  Irish chains look so nice, and I like the color variations.  Handquilting is so special. Your son will love it.
