    Here's a picture of my Scrappy Double Irish Chain. I just finished putting the borders on. There are several ahead of it for quilting so it will be awhile before it is completed. I hand quilt and it takes me quite awhile to finish one. I think this came out pretty nice. I thought it would be a good way to use up scraps but I didn't even make a dint in my stash. I wasn't sure I would like the green border but it's not to bad. It does bring out the green in the blocks. Besides, it was a large piece out of my stash.

    Very nice. I like this one. I have some blocks made, but I have many other projects cued up ahead of it. Your quilt will be so lovely hand quilted.

    I love the green! It would appear just about any color would have worked. I just LOVE scrappy quilts!

    That is so pretty. I love the double Irish chain pattern. One of my favorites. Great way to use up some scraps too. Thanks for sharing.

    It looks good now, but when it's quilted it'll be fabulous.
