I am working on my Irish Chain table runner and making some good progress on this long weekend. I started with this design:
So then I had to make another four-patch, cuz there are gonna be three of them in this quilt.
Now, some serious self criticism -- I am not crazy about using the blue and white plaid in there. I think the scale of the plaid is too large for the size of these squares. I wish I had used a solid light blue instead (which is what I originally designed). There was one in this line of fabrics but I couldn't find it and ended up using the next best thing, which was this plaid. Not so sure it was a good choice. oh well. This design will be published in the Feb issue of Quilter's World next year.
Back to the sewing machine to finish these blocks and do the border. Suggestions are always welcome. Hehe, wait till you see the piping! LOL
Qué trabajo!! Felicitaciones!!!ReplyDelete
I agree about the plaid. You lose some of your pattern with it. I think the solid would be perfect. I even know where you can get it! LOLReplyDelete
Beautiful pattern. I love Irish chain. It will be lovely!
I like the plaid. It adds an airy, watercolor spark to the piece.ReplyDelete
