    All Scrappy Double Irish Chain quilt

    Someone gave me some scraps from a LQS and this is how I used them. It's 56x75 and haven't decided the final border yet but it'll probably be scrappy. Thanks for looking! Lots of pics follow!

    I never thought of doing an irish chain as a scrappy. This beautiful quilt proves it can be done.

    This was the first scrappy Irish Chain I've seen, and I really like it! I also like the fact that you used so many different fabrics, and like the I spy of it as well. Thank you for sharing

    Thanks everyone so much for the great feedback! This quilt took only 3 days to make! It used 500 different 2.5" squares exactly and I want to make another as I love quick quilts!! I loved putting in the ISpy and scattering the colors! If you make one, be sure and use busy fabrics for an exciting quilt!
