This is my first quilt. Machine-pieced, handquilted. It's based upon a countrylanes pattern, using a double Irishchain and a ninepatch. At the time I made it (2004) I didn't really like greens, but I loved blues, so instead of countrylanes, it became 7-seas. I added an inner border, because I like quilts to have boundaries. I thought the original pattern was a kind of flowing away, without a distinctive border.

i agree, i think irish chains beg for borders.  isn't this a single irish chain?   either way, it is beautiful,  and your first quilt,  WOW.
