    I like it. A lot! You've given me an idea for 2" squares I've been cutting from my scrap box. Thanks for sharing.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your color choices. I like the white background with your bright colors. Very stunning. Good Job, thanks for sharing.

    I've helped with one Irish Chain and didn't enjoy the pattern we used very much...tiny, tiny squares and only about 6,500 of them! :roll: That was as a new quilter and for some reason, new quilters always seem to feel the tiniest block pieces are the best "starter" quilt patterns to use. I find I like something with pieces a bit bigger. Yours looks like one I'd enjoy. Interestingly, this quilt was given as a fundraiser item and it was raffled off. It brought in over $3,000. All of us who worked on it in our quilt group had called it the Quilt From H_ _ _ _ until we found out it brought in that much money so then we changed the name to Quilt from Heaven! :lol:

    Well this one a Quilt in a day quilt Elenor Burns. It seems I have always worked with 12- 17 inch blocks cuz the smaller ones intimadated me. Now I like ising 1 and 2 inch squares. The ones in this one were 2 inch. I cant image 6500 squares. But its like being a teller you can only handle one at a time and boy to they add up fast.
