Blue and Yellow Irish Chain Quilt





A Quilt Selected by Hannah

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 white on white print used for the background, and the care taken in the quilting and piecework.

The back of the quilt is covered with a solid white fabric. The quilting density is good, averaging about 100 linear inches of stitching per square foot. The stitching is good with about 6 stitches per inch. A high quality quilt.

Irish Chain - Greens/white Twin Size Quilt (picture is a queen on a queen bed)(hs7622)
72 inches wide by 103 inches long -- $825
Currently our only Twin size quilt! 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.
