Irish Chain miniature quilt 21 x 21"

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Irish Chain Link to website or photo www.simplicity.com/t-free-quilt-patterns-Irish-Chain-Quilt.aspx 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.

What you will need

  • Two coordinating cotton prints

Q&A with dottyeb

kooka asked:
love the miniture quilt...as a relative beginner it would be good for quilting practise.
dottyeb answered:
If you plan on hand quilting it, this is a good one to start on. All that is required is quilt an "X" over each square, i.e. one large on over the large square, and then smaller 'X's' over each smaller square. It is also a very simple quilt to piece together. Good luck on your venture, whatever quilt you choose.
