Irish Chain Top Finished

Back in the winter I participated in an
Irish Chain quilt along.
I have to say....
I loved making this quilt!
Out came my box of red fabrics I had collected to make another
quilt that I did not enjoy making, so stopped.

The Irish Chain is ready to be dropped off at my LAQ tomorrow!

This is a queen size quilt and will go on my bed once it's finished.


The subtle changes in color with the scrappy reds makes it sparkle, I think.


The backing is wild! No photos of that yet,
but I put several pieces of reds together,
along with the quilt parts I started originally with these red fabrics.
I'm using what I have here!

Happy Quilting!
Be safe and be well.

Your Irish Chain quilt top is gorgeous, Ramona. How fabulous to make it all from fabric in your stash. I look forward to seeing the quilting pattern and the backing fabric as well. I can just imagine how beautiful this quilt is going to be all finished and on your bed.

I have always loved the Irish Chain pattern - the red is great.

Love, love, LOVE! Simple is best. The subtle variation in the reds adds a lot of movement.

Fabulous! I love that your reds are scrappy, gives it so much interest. Can't wait to see it quilted!

Beautiful. It's hard to beat the elegant look of a red and white quilt.

I think it looks really nice. Can't wait to see how it looks quilted, bound and on your bed. I have been sewing like crazy the past few weeks. So far I have 2 pants, a top, and two quilt tops finished. I am a longarm quilter but my machine is not in quarantine with me so I am going into withdrawl.

You are like me - I love those white polka dots on white fabric! I use it a lot! Love all your projects you post.

Your Irish Chain is so much more interesting with a mix of red fabrics than it would be with all the same red. Can't wait to see how you're having it quilted!

I think you should name it lady in red. It's so pretty now but can't wait to see how your quilter adds to it.
