    A Different Kind of Irish Chain

    I was asked to post this picture again. I posted it about two years ago. My son and his wife loved the pattern of Irish Chain and had navy blue curtains in their bedroom. They also had a jungle motif so that was a problem coming up with a design. Here is the picture of what I finally came up with. I love the way it turned out.

    Wonderful work. I love the way you used the jungle animals and Irish chain together.

    I missed it the first time. Love it, such an original idea for a traditional pattern. I have a all blue and white Irish chain that I am trying to figure out what to do with the "blank" squares. Since it is already put together I was thinking either applique or embroidery in a Celtic design.

    Very pretty, and I love your "jungle" fabrics in the Irish Chain quilt.

    I really like it with the print fabric in the middle so you don't have that big blank space.

    What a great idea! I love Irish Chains, but had never thought to use the chains as frames - thank for posting, as I missed it the first time.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    We made one in green and white at our guild and embroidered a four leaf clover in the middle of the white space. Turned out real well so I am sure yours will be great also.

    Irish Chain on my bucket list. It certainly appeals more to me with a focus block in the center like that. I love African animals and prints and I think I've just amended my bucket list! Wonderful job!
