Double Irish Chain by Pompom
Double irish chain
I made this quilt as a wedding gift, I had always wanted to try out the pattern and although it isn't difficult at all it is time consuming as there's lots of repetitive strip piecing and a huge amount of trimming. This is the largest quilt I've made and measures in at 90 inches square, the machine quilting was actually painful as I throw the mass of material over my shoulder and feed it in, I had to take a break every 40 minutes. I do like how it has turned out, such a simple yet effective pattern, but am glad it's finished, next time I'll make a smaller one. The plain white squares were hand quilted with ivory Aurifil 50 wt thread in a double feather circle. The materials used were Kona solids white, Bella solids country red, Riley Blake and Michael Miller gingham and polka dot.
