    Just in time for Valentine's Day. Maybe it will even be quilted by next V-Day! :roll:

    Thanks for the inspiration, quiltmakers. I saw so many beautiful examples of Irish chains here. I really had fun.

    Happy Valentine's Day!

    Irish chains are still my favorite traditional pattern. I just never tire of them, especially when they are as pretty as this one. Great job Chele.

    What they said. The borders are nicely done, too.

    A true classic!

    Are you going to hand quilt it or machine quilt it?

    I've been planning to do a red & white Irish Chain for a friend. You've motivated me to move it to the top of my to-do list!

    That's an Irish Chain? I wasn't sure. It's basically a 9 patch with a solid square? Your colors are simply awesome. It has a Danish feel to it. :D

    And look at that precision. Awesome job. Have you made others?? I'd love to see more!!

    Great job Chele!! It is truely a work of art. I think Red work in the squares would be great too! I bought several embroidery transfers and was thinking of using them for Redwork. I think that Irish chain might be my plan. I like doing the Irish chains anyway. Can't wait to see what you are planning for the centers. :D

    That looks really nice. I was looking for Irish Chain quilts too. I just got my top together and am in the midst of quilting it.........free motion. I'm playing it by ear so who knows how it's going to turn out. I think I need some lessons on free motion quilting and top quilting designing.

    Very nice Irish Chain. I have thought of a red and white one for myself, but it's pretty far down the list for this year.

    What is nice about the IC is the very nice white blocks that let you show off all sorts of hand or free motion or cross hatch quilting. Little frames for your art.

    Hope to see more,

    Chele--I keep coming back to peek at your masterpiece. Are there two different red prints? I just love how they compliment each other--the one from a distance has a mottled look--is that the right word? Kind of soft for a red. So pretty. I never think to use white--but every time I see one it's just stunning--so crips and clean looking. Like it belongs on a cottage bed with the ocean and sand out the window--on a breezy day. :D

    You got yours done much faster than I did. I love your color choices. Mine was supposed to be a little different. I followed the instructions so well that I forgot that I wanted the darker color to be the double part of the chain. Oh well! I have no clue as to what I'm going to bind it with yet. Aren't we proudl?
