triple Irish chain

Recommended Posts

Someone posted a triple Irish chain block with a leaf design that looked so good. Did I save it, NO. Do I want it now, OF Course. Can I find it again, Heck NO. Could anyone help?

Was the leaf design a pantograph? victoriasews posted one in animal prints using a panto a while back.

Do you remember anything else about the quilt?

I am guessing here but perhaps it is something similar to the open block that is quilted on Melora's quilt? It's essentially a circle wreath with leaves rather than feathers.

Is this what you had in mind? Linda Rech quilted this quilt.

Oooh yes! And me "likey very muchy" how you quilted the curvy swirly lines in my block to create movement of wind. You rock, Linda R. ;) That really is such a pretty quilt, isn't it. I love all of those blocks. So sweet. Even though I am not a Moxie in the true sense, I am one in spirit. Thanks for letting me be part of Melora's quilt. :) I keep Melora in my prayers.

Here is Barb Mayfield's Irish Chain that was at MQS. It shows Linda Rech's rose and leaf design stitched out. Isn't it gorgeous? Barb did a beautiful job on this quilt. One of my faves...

My thanks too! I love my quilt, I usually use it every night I am home now that the weather has changed and we keep our thermostat on the low side. It was sooo thoughtful and really makes me feel all cozy and warm inside and out.

Shana you can come anytime the moxies would LOVE it. They would fight over who gets you (hahaha) They will have every minute booked for you with awesome stuff.

Just keep it in the back of you mind

Linda great quilting, and great batting.

This one is easy to answer - 2 layers of batting! Used Hobbs 80/20 on the bottom and wool on the top. Since the QD Wool is so light weight it did not add much to the overall weight of the quilt. I also don't find that Hobb's 80/20 provides much warm (IMO) so using the 2 battings together made sense to me. Plus the added benefit of outstanding definition of stitching!!! Once washed, this combination looks even better.

Ah-huh! I knew it. I was wondering if there was a wool batt on top.

It's really lovely, Meg. You did such a super job. I'm going to give it a try.
