    Scrappy 1930 - 1940's Reproduction Double Irish Chain

    98 x 105 all done on my Brother 1500S


    I thought I resized this picture, but it still seems large. I'd better get back to reading the picture posting instructions because it apparently isn't sinking into my brain!

    Beautiful double Irish chain!! I also love the blue background -- really brings out all the lights of the 30's fabrics.

    Wonderful quilt!! I love Irish Chain quilts, too, and the blue is just the right color to set it off.

    Your quilt is beautiful and as others have said-the blue is wonderful. Would you mind sharing where you purchased the blue and the name of the color if possible. It is perfect for repro quilts.

    Great job. I usually resize my pictures in paint before posting them online. But, I think this size is good for quilts. You can see the quilting and that's nice. I love the Isrish Chain.

    Nicely done. When resizing the photos use the web page size. It will be something under 100kb. But I liked the size of the photo. I could see the quilting. Luann

    I like the larger pictures. Some of us don't have that great of eyesight and your size is perfect for seeing your beautiful colors and quilting.
