Double Irish Chain

Today's block from the calendar "365 Quilt Blocks a Year" is the Double Irish Chain.  I have another first with this one, it is an 11-inch block.


This is block number 78 of 366 (it's leap year).  If I finish my block early enough in the day, I will show it to my husband to get his opinion.  I can usually tell what he is thinking by the look on his face and the comments I receive.  Tonight I actually got a "would it be really hard to make a whole quilt like that?"  SUCCESS!  I think I may be cutting quite a few 1-1/2" squares to make a bed sized quilt.  If you haven't entered the give away, there is still time, the drawing will be on March 24.  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

Beautiful. The Double Irish Chain was the first quilt I made and I love the pattern.
