    That came out really nice. Really like the boarder it compliments the quilt.

    Love scrappy quilts and your Irish Chain is great. I just might add that to my list of quilts to make. Thanks for sharing.

    I am always amazed by how "sort of yukky" individual fabrics come together to make a thing of beauty. What a great job you did!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

I love your version & am anxious to see it with the borders. I just used a lightly patterned print on mine & was quite happy. Do you know how you plan to quilt this little gem? I love it! So fun!

    This is so cute. A person can be occupied for hours looking for all the little I Spy motifs. Lovely!

    That is very pretty and I too think it looks like an I Spy quilt.

    Here's the double irish chain quilt that my friend made for me. I made one for my nephew and its all bright jewel tones, too bad I didn't take a picture of that one.

    So beautiful of your friend to make for you!! Love the 30's fabrics and especially it goes well with soft ivory/muslin backgrounds! The one you did in jewel tones I can imagine the beauty of it! I really love this pattern so much! TFS with all of us!! It's gorgeous!!

    Turned out great!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Thank you, Rebecca! I bet your DIC quilt was beautiful! You can always do another one!! I've been looking for easy continuous line patterns and I think I'm going to do this flower in the alternate blocks. Either that or I'm going to applique a single tulip w/2 leaves underneath (no stem) in all the alternate blocks. Won't that be a stunner? I'll eventually get to the border ideas after all that! lol. Here's a pic of this pretty loopy flower:

    Love your quilt, the Irish Chain in my favorite pattern, I like the single, double and triple. I have a single scrappy started now, and I plan to do a Triple Irish for my son and FDIL - she is from Ireland, and the wedding will be in Ireland in 4 weeks. I found some really pretty fabric in March at JoAnn it is not the usual St Patty's fabric, but really pretty fabric that has Ireland themes. I want to have this done on their 1st anniversary -- I am a newbie and am comfortable doing the top, but need more practice for the FMQ. So I am giving myself a year to get it finished.

    Thank you, gollytwo! I never use pins and just butt the pieces up to each other. This is a time-saver technique for me!
