Wonky Irish Chain - A New Pattern

Introducing Wonky Irish Chain, my newest pattern which is now available in my Pattern Shop :)    I just love Irish Chain's and so I thought it would be fun to give this traditional quilt a bit of a modern twist.

This quilt is so much fun to piece!!  It goes together fast, is suitable for beginners and up, and has endless layout options.

And it comes with size options!!!!  Wonky Irish Chain has options for a Baby, Lap, Queen, and King size quilt.

This cover quilt is the Lap size and the fabrics are Mama Said Sew by Sweetwater for Moda.   I love all of the quilting goodness in these prints!!  Which is why I choose it because this quilt is actually for me. I have already snuggled up with it in front of the fireplace :)

A little detail.  Whereas this quilt is all about quilting, I decided to do a basic stippling stitch in the background.  It felt appropriate.  Then I stitched in the ditch  around all of the "pieces" so that they really pop. (By the way, I used my free motion foot to stitch in the ditch, no way was I up to turning my quilt a million times :)

So what do you think???  I hope you love it as much as I do.   And, if you do happen to love it, and want to make one for yourself, (and maybe you will keep yours too) you are in luck!!!  Leah, at Burgundy Buttons, has made up a Wonky Irish Chain Quilt Kit featuring the same Mama Said Sew prints that I used!!!!  The kit is for the Lap size.  The kit also includes the pattern for free and the fabric itself is at a major discount.  What a deal!!!  So pop on over and grab a kit for yourself so you can get going on your Wonky Irish Chain quilt.

Don't you just love my little kido's fingers in that picture.  They were so sweet to help me :)

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I know I have said it before, but I can't say it enough!!  I have the greatest readers and every day I am humbled to have such wonderful people interested in what I create.  Thank you!!!  I'm Linking up with Kati at From the Blue Chair :)
