It Doesn’t Look Epic, But It Is

Just a single in-progress photo today. I’m super-excited about this one, which is going to be a crib-sized Irish Chain quilt. Believe it or not, it’s almost done, I just need to add some solid blocks and a border.

Irish Chain quilt blocks

I have completely fallen in love with Judi Madsen‘s book Quilting Wide Open Spaces, and this Irish Chain I’m making is a scaled-down version of one of the quilts in the book. The thing I really love about this book is that she walks you through, step-by-step, how she would quilt each quilt. It really demystifies the complex quilting she does. I mean, check out this photo. This is the quilting for the quilt I’m making, and Judi Madsen has me convinced that I can do it! We shall see….


  1. Oooh having a book that breaks down how to design quilting sounds really useful!! I can’t wait to see what you do with your Irish Chain as far as the quilting goes! It’s such a beautiful design. :)

  2. Wow! That is going to look awesome. Good luck!
