concrete Irish chain quilt
This was another one of those unfinished projects that has been hanging around waiting so patiently for me to finish it.
My starting point for this quilt was the grey background print. I loved the concrete look of the speckled grey print and wanted to let it shine. I was hoping that adding just a hint of vibrant color would let that happen.
And did it ever! I love how they bring out the best in each other.
I quilted it along the white diagonals in white for a subtle emphasis on the chain pattern.
I pieced the back with a mix of prints.
Mostly grey and white, but I couldn't resist adding some more color with the firework print.
It was a chilly day for a photo shoot, but thankfully my helper was able to keep warm.
