What was your inspiration?
Always wanted to try an Irish Chain pattern. Wanted to execute it in traditional 'Irish' greens and white. These prints were perfect for my purpose. It is hand quilted.
What are you most proud of?
Love the crisp, clean look.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I used 3-1/2" whole squares, and 1-1/2" strips sewn together to make up the strips needed for the 9-patch blocks. The Simplicity tutorial shows how they go together. Mine is a miniature quilt for a table topper or wall hanging, so I had to downsize the block size accordingly. It is a cute little miniature quilt.
