My Scrappy Irish Chain

My Grandpa used to sing *My Wild Irish Rose* all the time, and for some reason when I typed My Scrappy Irish chain..... I sang it.....

Yep - Totally channeling my Grandpa these days....

Anyways - I bought this book (by Melissa Corry) a long time ago, and I wanted to make the cover quilt. I had always thought I could do it for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge. And then! I put the book away.... so dumb!

Well I found it again - and thought - I am only two months into the RSC for 2018 - I could catch up!!

And here I am:



I made 6 Light Blue Blocks, and am working on the Purple Scrap blocks - AND - I even tested making one of the chain blocks!! YAY!!>>

now I need to go dig for some more lights to set my chain pieces - but I am on a roll..

off the wall Friday   cuz it hasn't really gotten TOO the wall yet - ;-)

What a great pattern. Putting things away always leads to no good. So glad you found that book again.

That Irish Chain in rainbow colours is going to be so pretty, your blue block looks great.

It's fun to see how those scrappy blocks can turn into the Irish chain design! That looks like a fun project!

Quilty Fred said...

Wow, beautiful project! Great blocks so far!

Cathy said...

Oh, that's an unusual IC. I like the scrappiness, of course, of both background and chain. It's a perfect RSC project!

And my dad used to always sing "My Wild Irish Rose" especially after he had a nip or two of whiskey.
