    My Triple Irish Chain with a twist.

    My son and his wife love jungle animals. I was trying to make them a quilt for Christmas four years ago and wanted to put the animals in the quilt but was making a Triple Irish Chain. Here is what I came up with and they loved it. Thanks for looking.

    That is lovely!! I love irish chains ....just love it!!
    What is the name of the line of fabric with the white tiger? I have searched endlessly for fabric with white tigers on it. I asked my son what kind of quilt do you want because his is almost 10 years old. he says one with white tigers" I thought easy......not so much! Thanks in advance and again awesome quilt

    I am so sorry that I don't remember the name of the white tiger fabric. It was four years ago and I only had a little of it. There isn't any of the tiger fabric left. I think it was a Cranston fabric but I can't say for sure. Sorry. And, thanks to everyone for the kind and complimentary comments on this thread. I don't feel I am in the same category as many of the quilters on this board and your kind words just thrill my heart. Thanks again.
