    Irish Chain with attempt at FMQ

    I like this quilt -- colors, design -- and tried FMQ with Celtic Knots in the "centers", and a sort of Celtic border. Had LOTS of trouble seeing the chalk lines for the knots...used chalk to mark on the dark fabric. And it was especially hard retracing the stitching where needed to get the over and under look.

    Anyway, after washing the crinkling hides most of the flaws (well, for my purposes)...I really like the back. Not sure how well it will show up here.

    love your color choice, and the extra backing design to give double design use

    Your Avatar of the colorful Double Irish Chain caught my eye, as well as the one you posted. I cannot see it well, and it doesn't show up when I go into your profile. I'm looking for a Double Irish Chain look for my daughter and her soon-to-be new husband, part of their wedding gift for this summer. Would you be able to post a larger picture of this? It's just what I'm looking for! I just need the ideas. I have yet to make that pattern. Thanks so much!
