Irish Chain Quilt Finish

Thank you so much for sharing!

I recently finished this quilt, the Irish Chain quilt from THIS Craftsy class.  I have wanted to make an irish chain for awhile now, and I had some lovely Joel Dewberry fabric and thought this would be a fun project.  What do you think?  I gave it to my bff, who also lives next door and doesn’t have one of my big quilts yet.  Her daughter has one, but she doesn’t.  One day all my friends and family will have something I have made for them and thats a fun feeling.

I filmed the process of how I free-motioned the swirls, so you can check that out HERE if you are interested 😉

Here is where the quilt will live, on the couch at my best friends house.

I love the slightly traditional feel of the design, but the modern prints of the fabric, and the clean and modern feeling of the grey and white.

Her little munchkin was excited about the quilt too 😉

What a beautiful quilt - it's gorgeous! It's the perfect project to combine a rather traditional pattern with modern fabrics. Melanie, thank you so much for your free motion quilt swirls video tutorial - it's really a life saver for me! I have hand-quilted many projects over the years, but was never brave enough to try quilting on my sewing machine (ok, I tried it once or twice with my old machine and the result was a disaster... the machine wasn't made for sewing / quilting more than 2 layers at once and I wasn't made for stippling...). But now, with my new and strong sewing machine and your great tutorial, I will take up the challenge! Best wishes Nicole

Thank you! Free motion isn't scary, but some machines do have a hard time with it lol, good luck and happy stitching!!
