Double Irish Chain Baby Quilt

This was originally posted over at Suture for a Living on March 13, 2009.


This is a double Irish Chain I made for the daughter of a blog friend. He happens to be Irish. Instead of just using two colors, I added the pink and dark green and interlaced them. The medium green was added because I didn’t have quite enough of the background fabric. The quilt is 50 in X 50 in. It is machine pieced and quilted.

Here is a detailed photo which doesn’t really do justice to the lovely light green background fabric. The chains are cross-hatched quilted. The “centers” have clovers quilted into them.

And another detail photo to try to share the fabric with you.
