Windermere Irish Change


Recently finished up dear daughter #3's  quilt. She wanted something with an Irish chain quilt feel and this layer cake of Windermere from Moda Fabrics.

I followed the Irish Change tutorial by Missouri Star Quilt Co. Once I had all the chain blocks made it pieced together very quickly as there is minimally seams to match. The fewer seams to match, the better, I always say : )

This picture represents the colors best. Found the perfect blue for the chain blocks - Quilter's Linen in Paris Blue. Have I ever shared my love for Quilter's Linen by Robert Kaufman? Well, I love them! They are the perfect linen weave look in a regular quilter's cotton fabric. They read like a solid but with a lot of texture. 

Quilt stats:
Finished size - 66" x 85".
Fabric - Windermere from Moda Fabrics
Accent fabric - Quilter's Linen Paris Blue
Batting - Heirloom wool
Backing - flannel sheet from Target

  1. I love all variations of Irish Chain and am excited to see this one. I plan to use this Irish Change version for a young man's quilt using Kaffe Fassett fabrics in earthy tones. Happy to see you made a smaller version since that is what I plan to do as well.
