  2. Hi Jane! I love chain quilting too! It's so LOGICAL! I was working on the nine patch block for the mystery quilt I am doing and my daughter watched me chain stitch for a while, then she said..."Wow Mom, that's a great way to make a nine patch!" I think she thought it was my original idea! Of course I told her it wasn't, but it's nice to be able to show off a few neat tricks to the all-knowing teenager every now and then!

    Your Christmas quilt is so cheerful!
