Design Wall

There is progress on my Irish chain. There won't be any progress this week since it is my 'quilt-a-thon' and my machines are at a friend's house.
I've decided to make it larger so the start of the first border on the right will be picked off so I can add 2 columns of blocks to make it queen size. This is the first Irish chain exchange I arranged in Baytown about 17 years ago. I also did a bright and black exchange and only about 10 years ago a red and white exchange.

What do you think? Will I be able to count this as a finished quilt for April?, May? or June?

That's alll folks...go over to Judy to see what other therapy has been going on in the blog world.

Love your irish chain and always wanted to do one.....perhaps in the next year, with all the others. love your colors and bet you get it done soon, Gail

I am sure you will be able to count it as a finish in the next few months. You are almost there and it is too beautiful not to get done quickly and enjoy :)

I've always wanted to make a scrappy Irish chain like that ... so, of course, I love yours. Push yourself to make the extra blocks--it's going to be wonderful.

April, May, June? Possibly. If it were me I would be getting slowed down with all the new "to do" things that come into the studio. But when you get this done it will be so worth it.

Laurie - with Easter fast approaching, I am going to guess that you finish your Irish Chain quilt in May! Good Luck!

I love it! It's good to know that I'm not the only one that has projects that hang out that long!

It was fun to see the same design in 2 other colourways!
