The first quilt up today is An Iris Braid from the Twists on Tradition section of the book and A Quilting Life is the stop hop!!! Sherri McConnell is a wonderful friend that is always up to some amazing fabric goodness!!! She has created a wonderful pattern line and at this last market, introduced her first fabric line, Bright Sun that she teamed up with her daughter to design. I just think that is so incredible that they get to work together doing something they both love!! Pop on over to see her stop ;)
An Irish Braid was one of the first designs I ever made. The original design is almost 4 years old, but it fit the book so well and has always been a huge favorite of mine, so it made it in ;) Even though this quilt looks super complex, it really is quite simple, using strip piecing and jelly rolls to really speed everything up. You can 2 patch your way to this beauty in no time. So fun!!!
And that is all 15 quilts from the book!! But we still have one more stop for today and something special to share!!!! The wonderful Jenny Wilding Cardon from Martingale Publishing has put together an Irish Chain Quilts summary post!!! And she even has an e-book giveaway to go along with her post. But Jenny didn't stop there. As we were setting up this whole blog hop, Jenny asked if it would be okay if each of the folks at Martingale made up a block as well. And of course, I said absolutely fantastic yes!!!! So a few weeks ago I got this adorable quilt top in the mail!!!! Oh, my goodness, oh my goodness!!! You can see more about it by popping over to Jenny's post here :)
And that is today's stop!!!
