Breaking Up - Tucker Prairie Edition

Today is the final day of my Irish Chain Quilts Remakes.  If you missed the previous 2 days you can find Daisy Chain here and Bitty Bits Here ;)    And today, it's Breaking Up!!!!!

Breaking Up is from the Twists on Tradition section of Irish Chain Quilts.  It really is such a fun quilt to piece and is easier than it looks.   I just love all of the movement from the mismatch chain and the pop of that great navy!!

For this quilt, I decided to use the remains of a  Tucker Prairie Fat Eighth Bundle by One Canoe Two for Moda that I had left over from another project.  I had used all of the warm toned prints for the other project leaving all of these beautiful cool tones for this quilt.   I matched it with a beautiful BasicGrey Grunge Navy Print for the chain and a Grunge White Print for the Background.   I love that the Grunge White has beautiful green hints to it that play so well with the prints!!! I tell you what, I love Grunge!!!!

When it came time to quilt, I went pretty similar to the original with just a few changes.  I did these fun flowers in the squares with double arches which is a small alteration from the original but in the same ballpark and then in the background I went with a great little all over loopy.  I tell you what, I forgot how much fun it is to do little loopies ;) I was flying across this quilt top, so fun!!

I am so excited about this new Breaking Up - Tucker Prairie Quilt.  I just love the colors and I am hoping it will be a big hit at my trunk show today :)   If you have made your own Breaking Up quilt I would love to see it!!!  You can email me a picture at

And that ends up the Irish Chin Quilts Remakes, well at least the ones I had planned.  I am sure there will be more to come ;)  

I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!

Linking this finish up to Sarah's and Amanda's ;)
