Twin Rose Black and Cream Irish Chain Quilt
(View more photos by clicking on the smaller images above.)





A Ruth Flaud quilt

A wonderful gift for that special person

Irish Chain quilts are known to have been made in Lancaster since the early 1800's. While this quilt doesn't look at old fashioned, the choice of fabrics, the quilting pattern, and the border are all similar to Irish Chain Quilts made in Lancaster in the 19th and early 20th Centuries. Note the rich cream white tone on tone cotton print used for the background, and the care taken in the quilting and piecework. The 'bed' photo shows it on a queen size bed.

The back of the quilt is covered with solid cream white cotton fabric. The quilting density is good, averaging about 100 linear inches of stitching per square foot. The stitching is good with about 7 stitches per inch. A high quality quilt.

Currently our only Twin size quilt! A very popular pattern book displays a lovely cottage in Ireland with an Irish Chain quilt in front. It brings to mind coziness, but there is some uncertainty whether the picture could be an example of another romantic myth or if the pattern truly came from Ireland. Current documentation of the Irish Chain Quilt pattern indicates that is was developed in American in the early 1800's. It may be popular because it displays a nice solid space between the chains to admire the maker's needlework skills. Here you can see the lovely hand quilting done in the feather circle designs which we all love and makes this quilt so attractive - shown best on corner thumbnail. The fabrics are 100% quality quilter's cottons and the stitches measure 8 stitches per inch.
