    I don't really care for the fabric in person, the quality is fine but the colors seem drab to me now.

    It 'tis lovely, Kathy! Bummer about falling out of love with the fabric. Hide it away for a bit and then try it again. Perhaps you just need a vacation from it. It is a great quilt and if the love's not there I'm betting you could find someone to take it off of your hands! :-D For example, I have a daughter that loves to collect the quilts I'm not fond of!! I'm sure she'd be happy to oblige you too! :lol:

    actually it suits it's purpose great, I want to try something other than a pantograph in those big spots and with the design it won't show up a whole lot so if it doesn't turn out too good it won't ruin the quilt!

    They are a bit more muted than I would have thought but they look wonderful in that pattern. Great job.

    I have some of that light fabric too, bought it online and also thought it was drab when it arrived. It looks great in your quilt, though. It makes a nice neutral to blend with the other more powerful colors.

    I have never seen an Irish Chain that wasn't beautiful; including yours!

    Love the colours.
    The "plain" blocks are made from an unusual fabric.
