This post is inspired by Jacque and her cute little Irish Chain quilt that she made.
When I started quilting again in 2005 I was all over the Double Irish Chain.
I made a lot of them.
They are usually strip pieced and really fast and fun.
It's also where I really learned to appreciate butting seams and proper directional pressing.
The main quilt on my bed is a Double Irish Chain.
This one was my first.
It's still one of my favorites.
This was for my mom.
This was for my SIL's mother.
This was for my cousins baby.
I started by using the measurements here. Then I began to modify the block sizes.
I still have plans to make a scrappy chain with leaders and enders like this one.
I think it's a great pattern for a beginner.
