Quilting my Irish Chain


 Today I started quilting my Irish Chain quilt.  I find hand quilting so relaxing and am enjoying the start of this new quilting project.  This quilt has EPP Dresden plates and I wanted to quilt them a with something different than quilting around the edges of each piece.

The pattern I cam up with in a scallop around the outer edge of the plate that echos the Dresden blades.  Then an inner scallop row with a circle in the middle. 
I finished one plate today.

And here is how the back of the quilt is looking.
I think I am going to like this pattern.  There will be other designs in the blank spaces, but for now this should keep me busy.
Thanks for stopping by,
