Two color quilts have always been a favorite of mine. They are timeless and classic and really let the pattern shine. This summer, I decided to try a two color quilt with a pattern I’ve never made before: a Double Irish Chain.
Amber from Gigi’s Thimble has a wonderful (and free!) pattern for a Double Irish Chain quilt, so I started by downloading her pattern. The pattern includes instructions for both twin and queen sized quilts and uses strip piecing for fast assembly.
I chose to use Confetti Cottons in Songbird and Riley White for a soft, calm color scheme then quilted it with a Centered Baptist Fans design.
The Double Irish Chain design mixed with the soothing blue and white fabric really gives this quilt an heirloom feel. You can find the free pattern download from Gigi’s Thimble HERE and the Etsy shop Simply Love Fabrics carries both Confetti Cottons Songbird and Riley White (plus ALL the other Confetti Cottons colors). So you can choose your favorite combination of colors for your very own Double Irish Chain.
