Triple Irish Chain Progress... And A Winner!
Puzzle Pieces, the teal is a print from Aneela Hoey's Little Apples, and the limey green is a Jinny Beyer one. I have no idea what the latter is called! And the background is a Timeless Treasures sketch in Mist.
I saw many triple irish chain quilts that look like this one but I decided to have all the chains close at the ends. I don't know why, but I prefer the look of it. I'm sure I've seen it done like that before, but I can't remember where. And if someone tells me that Eleanor Burns has an irish chain quilt book... I. WILL. SNAP. (I'm referring to the unnecessary and snarky comment about my last quilt in the comments -- it's been since deleted because just leave the effing snark on this blog to me, got it?? And get a damn life.)
The blocks are almost all finished, and very soon I'll put them all together and slap a small border (gasp!!) on it and I'll be done! Whee!
Oh, and the winner of the book giveaway is Tricia! (No, this isn't an April Fool's joke!) Congratulations!!! You can expect an email from me very shortly. And I totally forgot to announce a winner last week... my sis texted me over the weekend and was all "umm hey who won the giveaway on your blog?". Oops. I blame Easter? Chocolate coma?
