    Double Irish Chain and a Single Irish Chain

    I love "organized scrappy" quilts and really wanted to make a pink Irish chain. My sister seems to be drawn to pink lately so I made her a Double Irish Chain for her Christmas quilt. Usually there would be a light pink between the dark pink but I thought I'd put white in the middle instead. I am happy with the outcome.

    Also, since my friends daughter was having a baby girl and wanted pink and brown themed gifts I thought I'd make her a single Irish chain baby quilt (the back of it is brown with pink polka dots, you can sort of see it on the binding). Hope you like it!

    Very nice quilts! I really like your choice of white in the middle. It has a very nice look.

    Car seemed to like them. You can never go wrong with using shades of pink.
