When you think of traditional Irish quilts, the Irish chain is likely the first to come to mind. While it’s widely debated whether the art form is even Irish — some believe it was developed in the United States — there’s no arguing it’s one of the oldest quilt patterns that continues to be popular today.
No matter its origin, these quilt designs are all inspired by the luck of the Irish. Plus, each one is beautiful, beginner-friendly and a perfect St. Patrick’s Day craft, so go on and add one to your to-stitch list, stat.
