    Irish Chain using Two Fabrics

    Well, two fabrics plus one for the border!
    A few days ago AngeliaNR posted her Carolina Chain and I was going to make it, liked the same fabric used in the blocks. today someone posted the chain pattern using large squares and 9-patch. I made this using some fabric I've had for a while and didna't know what to do with this beautiful focus pattern. Wish I had more, I'd make a full bed quilt, I think it would be striking.
    This was done using 9-1/2" focus fabric blocks, and 9-patch made from 4-1/2" astrips.
    Thanks for looking.

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T – is it True? H – is it Helpful? I – is it Inspiring? N – is it Necessary? K – is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I think I have seen this focus fabric made into a stack and whack. It is so pretty and so is your quilt.

    Beautiful! I never would have thought to use a print as the focus in that pattern. I'll have to try that since it came out so pretty.

    that fabric is so lush - doing much more would be wild! Looks like you did a really nice job piecing.

    Thanks for posting your quilt. I have a focus fabric has been laying around for several years and I keep thinking I should do something with it. This has given me an inspiration how to use it. I really enjoy reading your mystery train quilts and seeing all the different quilts.

    This beautiful and bold print works how wonderfully with this pattern.
    One step at a time, always forward.
