    I've been toying with this one for awhile now to make for my son. It's not exactly an irish chain but similar and he likes the color black. I changed the excel format to a website. Maybe it won't take so long to download.

    NEVER MIND IT DIDN'T WORK EITHER

    It came up in my office software. That is gonna be pretty. With the grid like that, it is much easier to picture the construction. Thanks.

    I started with "cheater panels". Once we moved to NC in "87, I took a class at the community college and did a Dresden plate. Mchine pieced and hand quilted. By that time I was hooked :lol: Sisters and brothers kept producing nieces and nephews so of course baby quilts were required. It took me 10 years to finnish quilting it and it is on a bed in our mountain house soon to be our only house. (2 years and counting backwards ):!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!:

    simple irish chain. Twin size for my son's bed. It's full of mismatched seams but I think it's the best work I've done. Made a trip around the world for my other son. He doesn't want to use it because it's too nice. I try to experiment and learn something new on each so the 2nd one has a chain border. I've made numerous baby quilts, usually Irish chain as they go together so quickly. I make 3 quilts a year for our family reunions to raise funds- usually twin size. Quilting is cetainly an addiction.

    My first quilt was for my sister-in-law. It was of her kids hand and foot prints. The whole quilt was was sad and lop-sided. But she loved it and proudly hanges in her beautiful designer house...if it wasn't for the fact it's her kids hands and feet I don't think it'd be hung at all, lol. I loved the design and the theme, but man I wish I could redo that quilt.
