I have been working on my cutting skills .. and, decided I was ready to try to make a pattern. I like geometric quilts that make illusions so, I decided to try out this irish chain.

its easy -- but, sorta has a big bang for the buck -

Im not finished with it -- and dont know where Ill go next -- maybe a strripe of the darker blocks around the whole thing to act as a frame.. IDk yet.

Anyhow, Its a easy pattern -- anyone got other irish chain quilt pics to post?

Another beautiful project. I would like to see some closeups of the fabric, if you have time.

I used all types of novelty fabrics -- so there are bunnies, donkys, chairs, pin up girls, glasses, rain boots, sheep, and bird houses ... in there hidden in the fabrics.

Ill figure a way to get a few pics up onto flickr. 8 am is very early for me and Im lucky my fingers are evenw willing to type.

Im not sure - but, I think the donky is my fave.

Most of the fun fabrics came in the stash of fabrics I got from my aunt a few weeks back. Ive never really sewn with quilting cotton -- it sure is easy to sew with new, flat fabrics that are not that streatchy!
