    Swedish Double Chain

    It started as a traditional Irish Double Chain--but I had to put a twist to it and make it Modern!
    The white background is pieced as a traditional Irish Chain except I used a jelly roll of whites and added hexagons!

    so the hexes were appliqued to the white? Interesting....very pretty
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Love it! Can we see a photo of the entire quilt - looks like there is more white on an outer border?

    I love the colour combo, white and brights is one of my favourite mixes.
