    It's an Irish Chain kinda day!

    I have an old UFO that I have been working on. Well, actually two. One is on the frame to practice quilting and the other is on the design wall.
    at least I hope I like one of them.

    I'm sure they will turn out great. Post a picture when you finish.

    That's gorgeous - love the colours. Brown usually isn't my thing, but it works so well on this top. Which reminds me, I saw an 18th century Irish chain quilt in an exhibition a few months ago, made in beautiful muted colours on a creamy background, and took notes and drew pictures, as I'd like to try to do something similar. Must have a think about it!

    Great job! Good fabric choice!

    I love the Irish Chain pattern too. Your quilt is lovely. All those tiny pieces! That's what intimidates me.

    Love your color choices and their placement! I have a UFO, also an Irish Chain, done in shades of blue with a white background. Mmmm... maybe it's a Irish Chain kind of day for me too.

    Those tiny pieces aren't as hard as they look. You can make the nine patches by cutting strips L-D-L (Light, Dark, Light) and D-L-D and then sub-cutting the pieced strips into three pieced blocks. Then arrange those into nine patches.

    Beautiful quilt!
