    Does anyone know where I can find a pattern for a double irish chain. I saw one in the fabric store today and fell in love with it. Have the perfect material in my stash but no pattern. Help, my fingers are itching to start it.

    I used the Eleanor Burns book and mine turned out nice. One thing is very important: press your seams correctly. If you don't, you'll have a fabric fight on your hands. If you do, the pieces will interlock and you'll have a nice quilt. I did a double and am planning a triple. We aware also that as you add chains they get bigger faster.

    Did you get a load of this one yet? Yikes:

    Good luck; have you decided on your colors yet?
