Dizzy Days Irish Chain - A New Happy Quilting Pattern!!!

 I am super excited to share a second new pattern and quilts today!!!   Here is Dizzy Days Irish Chain!!! And yes, this is a remake of an old pattern, but I changed it up so much, including a new name, that I am just considering it new ;)  And my favorite change up is that I made is scrappy friendly, because we all have scraps, and they need to be used!!!!  

The  Dizzy Days Irish Chain Pattern can be found in my Etsy Shop in both a Paper version as well as a PDF version.  And it is on Special (along with all of my patterns :)  for it's release with PDF Patterns at $5.50 and the Paper Patterns are $7.00!  The patterns are full color and the paper version is in book format.  

Dizzy Days Irish Chain is such a fun quilt to make!  And the cool thing is, because of the random layout of the "random" blocks, no two quilts will look the same.  And yet, you still get the Single Irish Chain criss crossing every time.   The quilt is made with basic piecing techniques and the blocks go together super quick.  Cornerstones finish off the chain, but they blend in, so you don't even notice them or the sashing, so cool :)

This version of  Dizzy Days Irish Chain is made all from scraps!!!!   I pulled out scraps in pink, blue, yellow and green from Bonnie and Camille, Lella Botique, Coriander Quilts, and Sherri and Chelsi.  And there are some other designers in there as well, I just had the most from the above. ( probably because I make lots of quilts from their fabrics ;)   And didn't it just come together oh so cute!!!  I just love how happy and bright these colors are and how they pop of the background ;) 

I quilted this version of  Dizzy Days Irish Chain with small swirls all over the background.  I made sure to get those swirls in every knock and cranny and then left the blocks unquilted.  This makes them just pop and emphasizes the single chain all the more.  So fun!!!  And you know, 402 for the win!!  (I actually burned thorough a whole spool of 402 all in 3 days quilting so much :)  

And if you don't have scraps . . .  tell me your secret :)  No, just kidding, you can always make your quilt from a layer cake like the original.   Here is an oldie but a goodie made with a Basic Grey layer cake in the queen/king size.   You get the same fun scrappy took with a layer cake as they have so much variety in them ;) 

And of course, the pattern comes with size options so you can find the size that work just right for you!!!  The pattern has 6 size options :  Baby,  Child, Lap, Picnic, Twin, Queen/King.  So now you can make all the sizes :)  

 And as I mentioned yesterday . . .   my Happy Quilting Patterns have a new look but are still filled with full color - wonderful illustrations to guide you along each step of the way.        And thanks to the  . . .
You can get this pattern along with any of my patterns, books, or templates on sale!!!  Pop over to my Etsy Shop, to pick up your Patterns.   All, PDF Patterns are just $5.50, and the Paper Patterns are $7.00,  until December 18th :)    And while you are there, check out my books and templates as well, as everything is on sale ;)  Always good to save on shipping!! 

Oh, And one last note.   When you make your Dizzy Days Irish Chain Quilts I would love to see them!!!  You can email me a picture at or add it to social media with  #happyquiltingwithmc ;)  I can't wait to see your Happy Quilting Quilts!!!
