Bonnie Rose is a wonderful twist on a single Irish Chain Quilt. And the quilt is super easy to make, so it will go together in a jiffy. There are basic snowball blocks and even strip piecing for the 9 patches ;) It finishes at 63"x 75" so it makes a great snuggle size quilt and would be a fantastic wedding present. In fact, that is exactly what this quilt was gifted for ;)
And I love that the center snowballs really allow you to take advantage of large scale prints. It is often hard to put these in quilts as you don't want to chop them up all tiny, but this Bonnie Rose quilt really let's you highlight those beautiful prints!!! And then you can use all of the smaller prints in the line that coordinate for the chain. Just perfect!!!
And anything wavy and rounded is perfect for quilting the Bonnie Rose quilt. I choose to do a feathered swirl as I love how it just flows. But any swirl or feather or combination of them would just look so pretty on this chain quilt ;) Oh, and this quilt is put together with basic sashing, so if you haven't tried that before, this is a great way to learn ;)
