Flashback Friday – Irish Chain Quilt

This was my second pieced quilt that I started in early 2001 while living in Castle Rock, CO.  I finished it November 2008 in Honolulu, HI.  The top was completed for a while (around 2002 in Denver, CO).  I was just waiting on the best way to quilt it.  Each square is individually sewn, no strip piecing in this quilt.  I started before I knew about strip piecing, but I probably would have still done that since I hate strip piecing for the most part.

I use it a a couch throw (a bit bigger than your typical lap blanket, but not big enough for a bed).
