As we count down toward the end of the year, we’re also counting down toward the end of the quilts. Today’s is one of Marian’s earliest, a double Irish chain that’s machine pieced and tied, rather than traditionally quilted. (But it still counts as a quilt.) When I tossed it over the sofa, Domino fell in love instantly, returning to it over and over throughout the day. I’m not sure why. This quilt currently does duty as a protective covering in the back of Marian’s car, so maybe it’s absorbed some interesting smells. Or something. It’s a mystery.
