It’s been a busy week over here, what with the 2015 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop and all, but I did manage to find some time to work on my current WIP.
This fun little project is a pattern I call “Reverse Irish Chain” because, well, that’s what it is. The print fabric and the background fabric are inverted from a traditional Irish Chain. I started with this gorgeous fat quarter bundle of Utopia by Frances Newcombe. The colors are so rich and bright.
After I stared at the fabric for a while, and petted it for a little while more, I cut into it and put it up on my temporary design wall. I’m usually one for a “design bed” or a “design floor” but on special occasions I like to pull out the big guns and hang up some batting; cause I’m fancy like that.
It was pretty much standard Irish Chain patchwork from there; large squares and 9-patches, over and over.
I have a few more rows to add and I’m hoping I’ll have a finished top by Friday. I already have a few ideas for how I’m going to quilt this one.
That’s all for now!
