This quilt is a double Irish Chain pattern. The dominating fabrics for this quilt is the green velvet taken from this traditional Irish dress and a child's pink wool coat.
I removed all the ribbon from the dress very carefully so it could be in squares in the quilt. I also had to add some pink flannel to the quilt so that I had enough pink for all the diagonal squares in the pattern.
And similar to the 1st quilt I completed for this family I used some squares from the blue cotton dress with ribbon & lace still showing.
This quilt has a lot of feathers on it. In the center of every chain is a medallion of feathers. Some feathers are on straight spines ...
... others are on curved spines.
There are feathers on the border ...
... that curl around the corners.
And the back - even my husband commented on how pretty the back was!
I am going to really miss these quilts! Such a lot of work - I think maybe at least 100+ hrs in each!
