Irish Chain Baby Quilt

This will be my first attempt at a Double Irish Chain quilt.  I'm excited that my niece is having her first baby.  It's a girl!  The neat thing is that the baby was "made in Ireland" while my niece and her husband were traveling.  I thought it would only be fitting to do an Irish Chain in greens...  Here's my color selections.  I'm pretty happy with them right now.  The larger flowery print will be the backing.  I'm not sure which will be the double chain and which will be the chain.  I'll have to play with that.  But the kicker is that I ordered Bonnie Hunter's book Word Play Quilts and plan to put Brianne's name on the front of the bottom of the quilt in the yellow.  We'll see how that goes.

  1. Hi Kathy, glad you found me. This will be a lovely quilt for your niece's baby girl. Very cute. By visiting other blogs and leaving comments on them, you will have more visit yours and you will gain more visitors. By entering contests and having some of your own, you will gain more that way too. We would love to have you join our group! We are a bunch of quilters who are overweight and trying to do something about it. I will introduce you this week to the group. I will also send you an email. Nice to meet you!
