    I agree, looks like the simplest Irish Chain, which is just a 9 patch with the four corners and the center in colors. Can't get much easier.

    Right, it's a single Irish Chain. There's a cool video on how to make one on Youtube done by Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilting Company. I'm making a baby quilt for a co-working in the Irish Chain Pattern. Fun and simple.

    If that was the ONLY version of the block you made, you wouldn't get the same design as Elizabeth's lovely quilt.

    this is probably one of the situations where EQ7 would be better, but this one i designed in my EQ5. the quilt is 66x66 with borders of 1.5, 3, and 1.5. i cannot get the measurements for the patches of the 9p on point [i could probably do that with graph paper as the 9p's are 3" diagonally]. the inner blocks are 3".

    Sorry, GrannieAnnie, I read your post, incorrectly, as referring to the Irish Chain block (the larger double(?) 9-patch block ), and not the single 9-patch.

    (Only because that's the way I would construct it.)

    My bad.

    On your version, the 9-patches blocks used in the border would FINISH at 2-1/8, not a really fun size (17/8) to divide by 3.

    3 / 1.414 = 2.122 ...round up to 2.125"

    The beauty of Elizabeth's quilt is that the inner and outer 9-patches are the same size.

    The quote, from Elizabeth Ryan DeCoursey's book, is from 1935...the quilt, made by the blogger's mother, is new.

    Ah, so it is.

    Still impressive.

    since you are so good at the math, how wide does the on point border have to be to make the 9p's the same size as the inner section, 3" ?
