It must be the season of the Irish Chain Quilts because this is quilt number two that I’ve finished in as many months (plus I have one more Irish Chain in the works)! There’s just something classic and timeless about an Irish Chain design, right?
The Irish Chain quilt design has been around for over 200 years! Crazy, right? While I love the classic two color Irish Chain quilts, I wanted to go a little more modern this time around. I used Riley Blake Designs new Hush Hush fabric line to create a great low volume, scrappy background. I paired the gorgeous subtle prints with one of my fabric bold Confetti Cotton solid colors, Curry.
The result is a fun, scrappy take on the classic Irish Chain design!
For the quilting, I chose a design called Russian Flame. I wanted something with curves and movement and love how the dense machine quilting adds another modern element to the classic quilt design.
I loved making this fun quilt and am just so pleased with how it turned out. I now have it listed in my Etsy shop, so if you’ve been looking for a handmade quilt, you can check it out HERE.
