There are two quilts in one in this pattern. One belongs to Ann Jermey and the other to Barbara Chainey. They are very similar in design but Barbara's has been well-used and the red has rotted away. Ann says about her quilt - This a single Irish Chain design. The quilt is 10 blocks by 11 but looks as if it has been cut down from a larger quilt. It is a summer 'coverlet' as it has no wadding but does have stitching to hold the two layers together. About her quilt Barbara says - this quilt was a winter quilt with wadding and quilting. It is still possible to make out the quilting design in some places (the reason I bought it). Some similar quilting suggestions are given in the pattern. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 70 x 77 inches
