Christmas Carolina Chain

I made this from Bonnie Hunter's Carolina Chain pattern which, at the time, I found in her "Addicted to Scraps" column in Quiltmaker magazine. The pattern is now available in her newest book, Addicted to Scraps.


Christmas Carolina Chain 75" x 88"








I used a constant red print and a constant white print to form the chains and add some cohesiveness to the very scrappy top.

I set off the scrappy foundation-pieced border with a narrow black border.

Black binding and a snowflake-type print for the back completes the quilt.

This is a Christmas gift for my Mom. I had her open it early, so she could use it this holiday season, instead of having to wait until next year.

Happy Holidays!

  7. Beautiful, I really like the red and white chains and how the black border separates the center from the border. I think you backing choice was perfect.
