Luck of the Irish is a scrappy version of a Double Irish Chain and since I have made a Single Scrappy Irish Chain, and a Triple Scrappy Irish Chain, I guess this just finishes off the list of Scrappy Irish Chains to make. Yippee!!!
I just love the criss cross design of an Irish Chain quilt!!! And I love that Moda designed this quilt with 1 yellow print and then scrappy blue prints. It gives you that great scrappy look without losing the center yellow chain. So perfect!!!
When it came time to quilt it I wanted to continue to add to that Double Chain so I quilted the yellow patches in little flowering orange peel design and then a single arch in the blue patches. Then in the background I just did some all over swirls. I love the way it really makes each part of the quilt pop out.
And I know, you can't really see any of the quilting in the previous picture. The thread really matched the fabric. (which made it a little hard to see sometimes when I was quilting ;) But the light hit the quilt just right in this picture so you can see all of the yummy texture created. So fun!!!
And that is the Luck of the Irish Quilt!!! The quilt is now with the lovely folks at Moda and Summer Breeze IV is set to release in December, so you will see this design and fabric pop up then . And I know they are kitting this quilt as well, so super fun with that!!!!
And that's it for today!!! The kids started school on Tuesday so it's been a little crazy the last few days. But I think things are finally calming down today and I plan to spend it at my sewing machine :) So excited!!!
I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!
