Hello Kitty Irish Chain

Months ago, I mentioned starting some Irish Chain quilt tops ...

I got the Hearts quilt top done a few weeks after cutting the pieces ... 

Finally, last week, I got out and sewed up the pieces to the Hello Kitty quilt top ...

Here, pieces to the Hello Kitty Irish Chain are stacked up, ready to sew together. (More pictures of my Irish Chain process are in this post and this post, from when I was making the Hearts quilt top.)

The pieces went together nicely into a quilt top that's nearly 50" x 50".

I love the cute pink Hello Kitty fabric!

It's for sale on eBay, so I'm hoping somebody will enjoy quilting it up for their favorite Hello Kitty fan!

And, since I'm incurably on the lookout for my "next" project ... I had to do something with the too-little scraps that were leftover ... 

So, dozens of inch-and-a-half squares went into a container for the beginning of a "real" postage stamp quilt. I've made postage-stamp-style quilts with 2- or 3-inch squares before. Thought I might try the real tiny ones ... We'll see if anything comes of it ...

I'll be linking this post to:

  1. Cute! I like the way it turned out. :)

  2. It's so cute! I just love Hello Kitty, I'm sure someone out there will love it too!

  3. That's very cute. I love all the shades of pink on it.

  4. Wow! Very nice quilt - it obviously took lots of time to sew all of those tiny pieces.

  5. Looks great. We have a childrens book with an irish chain quilt on a bed in the illustration. I always fawn over it I need to make one.
    The hello kitty is really cute.
