My Block From Irish Chain Quilts

IMG_6783-1


Hey everyone! Welcome to my stop on the blog hop for Melissa Corry‘s new book, Irish Chain Quilts!

I had no idea how versatile Irish Chain quilts were before Melissa’s book landed in my mailbox. I guess I thought there was just one way to make an Irish Chain. Thanks to Melissa’s creative interpretations in this book, I’m realizing that Irish Chains have huge design possibilities. And now I’m dying to make a scrappy Irish Chain of my own!

But before I do that, Melissa asked each of us to choose one block to make from her book. She’s going to put all of our blocks together into a big, scrappy charity quilt. So awesome!

I chose the String of Pearls quilt for my block. Everyone participating in the blog hop made their blocks in certain colors, and mine was blue.

This was a really fun, easy, quick block to make, so a scrap Irish Chain quilt should come together great. As you can see, I went pretty scrappy with mine. Can’t wait to see how Melissa’s charity
quilt turns out!

    I have never been interested in the Irish Chain block quilts that I have seen in the past. Now that I have seen your scrappy blocks, I like them. Thanks for sharing your work and expanding my world.

    Wow. The blues are soothing and the block has a nice calm feel to it. I love the Irish Chain quilt pattern and am excited to see the variations.
