    I went on the internet and found a quilt like yours and every other row has the double whites. So you did read the pattern correctly, it is just a variation of the Irish Chain you weren't expecting.
    When I made a double Irish Chain there were two different blocks and this one just has the one block, so it appears easier - maybe it was, don't know. But it will be pretty the more rows you get together. I don't think you will need the sashing, but it would give you another variation.

    Thank you all! I believe I have figured out how to drop the one row and have it come out the same. I would just have two different blocks, then when joined they would be right. Whew! *Crossing my fingers*

    Here's a better explanation, of how it's supposed to look - http://www.generations-quilt-pattern...t-pattern.html Scroll down, to the Triple Irish Chain.
    Great website......

    Was just looking further, into that link I sent. In the "quilting an Irish Chain," I found this. It shows what that original block would look like, put together. http://www.generations-quilt-pattern...ain-quilt.html Scroll down, almost to the end.

    Good! So I see it wouldn't totally be *wrong* to do it this way...lol
    I keep going back and looking at the two, and find myself leaning toward the way I have it now ~ the uneven way.

    I really like the way the pattern turned out when put together as in the first photo. Will be a beauty when completed.

    I went to the website that Nessie suggested. If you scroll down to the bottom and click on how to quilt a irish chain
    http://www.generations-quilt-pattern...ain-quilt.html then scroll down a bit they show the same pattern you have and explain how to put together a full quilt using this pattern.

    [QUOTE=alderdweller;5582278]I have went over and over this and can't figure out what I am doing wrong. I am to the point that I believe the pattern is either wrong, or intentionally "different" than other IC's I've seen.[QUOTE]

    For this particular pattern to work out the blocks are asymmetrical. If you look at the layout below you'll see what I mean. If you just add another row (see my layout) to the top and left side of your blocks, the pattern will work out beautifully.

    I like the first picture the best, I think your pattern is different than a single or double Irish Chain. I think it will be beautiful when it is all together. I don't really like the sashing for it. Just my Opinion.
