    I want to make an Irish Chain soon. I'd love for everyone to post ones they've made here. :thumbup: 8) Would you tell me if it's single, double, or triple when you do? :wink:

    I can't post a photo... I don't have one (yet).

    They 'can' be easy. I have the booklet "Time for a Chain" by Nancy J Smith & Lynda S Milligan. It was very, very helpful with pressing directions and peicing info. This was my first Irish chain.
    Here is the TRIPLE that I did a few years ago. King size for my sister.

    grammy that is just beautiful! It sucks you in the way only a quilt can! :) Karla, don't forget about that beautiful Chain Terri did with the cardinal fabric. Let me see if I can find it. :)

    Oh gosh I love them!! I think my confidence is having seams match is stronger due to my new machine.

    grammy--that is some quilt!! I love your color choices. :D

    Terri's is a single and it's all based on how many fabrics are in the pieced square?

    This thread has a picture of my double irish chain I made several years ago. It isn't hard to do at all.

    This was done the 'hard' way... by hand...
    people want to know if 'hand quilting' is dead or whatever... I say,
    "been there, done that, got the t-shirt, - put it in a quilt"....

    I have soooo much more fun doing stuff the 'easy' way and on the machines now....
