I really like the tutorial for this quilt block. It is very thorough and the step-by-step photos are excellent. I think a beginning quilter could easily follow these instructions and construct this block, then sew together more, as many as are needed for the size quilt they wish to make. I have always wanted to make an Irish Chain quilt with greens and ivory or white fabric as homage to the Emerald Isle. Since I have Irish heritage, this would truly be a labor of love for me! Another one on my "to make" list. What color fabrics would you choose for your Irish Chain?

I love using pink and grey fabric together. That is one of my favorite color combos around!
