Nice job Chele!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
A true classic!
Are you going to hand quilt it or machine quilt it?
I've been planning to do a red & white Irish Chain for a friend. You've motivated me to move it to the top of my to-do list!
That's an Irish Chain? I wasn't sure. It's basically a 9 patch with a solid square? Your colors are simply awesome. It has a Danish feel to it. :D
And look at that precision. Awesome job. Have you made others?? I'd love to see more!!
Ohhh my gosh Chele!!! I love it love it love it!!! I may have to copy you one day, only add some redwork embroidery to the mix!!! That is absolutely beautiful girlfriend!
I love it.. the colors are simple and PERFECT.. great job!!
Great job Chele!! It is truely a work of art. I think Red work in the squares would be great too! I bought several embroidery transfers and was thinking of using them for Redwork. I think that Irish chain might be my plan. I like doing the Irish chains anyway. Can't wait to see what you are planning for the centers. :D
That looks really nice. I was looking for Irish Chain quilts too. I just got my top together and am in the midst of quilting it.........free motion. I'm playing it by ear so who knows how it's going to turn out. I think I need some lessons on free motion quilting and top quilting designing.
Very nice Irish Chain. I have thought of a red and white one for myself, but it's pretty far down the list for this year.
What is nice about the IC is the very nice white blocks that let you show off all sorts of hand or free motion or cross hatch quilting. Little frames for your art.
Hope to see more,

Chele--I keep coming back to peek at your masterpiece. Are there two different red prints? I just love how they compliment each other--the one from a distance has a mottled look--is that the right word? Kind of soft for a red. So pretty. I never think to use white--but every time I see one it's just stunning--so crips and clean looking. Like it belongs on a cottage bed with the ocean and sand out the window--on a breezy day. :D
