Irish or not? The cover of a well worn 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. I think the reason it was so popular over the years is that it leaves a nice solid space between the chains to display 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.
The quilt backing is a beautiful green print the same fabric as the print on the top of the quilt. The back corner tag documents the name of the quilt and the information in pigma fabric pen. All fabrics are selected by Lancaster's quilt designer, C Jean Horst and are managed to her quality standards of 30 years. Made in the USA by our Amish friends. A high quality quilt.
