Tutorial Throwback Thursday - Shine

 St. Patrick's Day was this week, and I totally forgot and didn't even where green.   So crazy.   But we can still celebrate it here onTutorial Throwback  Thursday !!   You all know I love Irish Chain Quilts, and have already shared the basic Single Scrappy and Triple Scrappy versions . . . so today, I thought it would be fun to share another twist on an Irish Chain Quilt . . . So for today's throwback, we are going back just 2 years to the Shine Quilt!!! 


Shine is a wonderful twist on a single Irish Chain Quilt adding a simple 9 patch to the center of the chain.     And the quilt is super easy to make and oh so fun!!!     The entire quilt is made with Strip Piecing and I even have a Subcutting Speed Up Tutorial  to make that part go fast as well.    It finishes at 66"x 82" so it makes a great snuggle size quilt and would work great on a twin size bed as well!!!    And there is even a printable version of this Shine tutorial, so great!!!!  


And I love that this quilt uses ombre!!!!   I just love the beautiful shades of color you get with an Ombre Jelly Roll.   And the fun thing is, V & Co. has made lots of variations of Ombre, including their newest Fairy Dust that will be coming out soon, and it has metallic stars, so excited!!!  It really is the Ombre that just makes this quilt Shine!!!   And it is the perfect use for a Ombre Jelly Roll.  


In fact, you even use every little bit of the jelly roll strips as the extras are used for a scrappy binding.   Isn't that just so fun!!!!   I always love a scrappy binding!!!     And I quilted Shine with an all over swirl, because it is just fun and easy and fast.   All the things that go with this quilt!!! 


And that is my Shine Quilt!!!     I hope you have enjoyed today's Tutorial Throwback Thursday!!!    To make your own Shine quilt  just click on any of the project name links for the free step by step tutorial.    And when you are done,  I would love to see your Quilts!!  You can email me a picture at happyquiltingmelissa@gmail.com, post it to social media with #happyquiltingwithmc  or or add it to my flickr group here ;)  I can't wait to see your Bonnie Rose Quilts!!!!
