    Welcome to the board!! Sorry can't help with pattern, but wouldn't it just be a triple chain and the colorwash made by your fabric choices? Search for colorwash irish chain and some pics may come up to give you ideas.

    I hope this helps. Explains all 3 types of IRISH chains and how to construct the blocks and entire quilt. Then at the bottom "Take it to the next level" it addresses how to do a color wash triple chain. If this isn't what you're looking for, at least it might help someone unfamiliar with how to make an Irish Chain Quilt. Welcome to the Board! http://www.generations-quilt-pattern...t-pattern.html

    Welcome to the board. I like the Irish chain but always do something else. I do occasionally work in well washed fabrics.

    Not only are the members here some of the best quilters, everyone is so helpful and friendly. I have learned more from the members on this board than in any quilt book I own. Their knowledge and experience is immeasurable.

    Welcome..
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    I made a very successful Triple Irish chain using my watercolor fabric. I had a book called Time for a Chain by Possibilities. I went from the darkest as the center chain gradually going to the lightest being the background. QIAD also has a really good Triple Irish Chain book with interesting layouts. Welcome to the board

    Welcome from the beauty of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia! You'll love this Board!
    Hello from Shenandoah Valley, VA. Quilting a few years. Love the process of creating the quilt top, but don't like making the sandwich of top, batting and backing as much. We have two Labrador Retrievers, a yellow and a chocolate. Blessings to all!
