Burgoyne Surrounded by the Irish 36, 37 and 38

I introduced the chain style block because I thought it would be useful to open up spaces between Double Irish Chain blocks.

It has proved so useful it has pushed the Irish Chain blocks out of the picture altogether.

At least this one has some Nine Patch blocks, which are alternated with solid blocks in the background colour to create Single Irish Chain.

What I should have done was introduced more Triple Irish Chain blocks.

I think that would work … so I will go have a play in Electric Quilt to see what happens!

    Hi Judy, nice to see your smiling face!
    Only a day off from cards, I’ve work myself to a nub in the yard today. According to my pedometer it is just over 5 miles walking to mow the lawn 🙂
    but it’s soooo pretty.
    hugs, Sharyn

    Hi Judy, I like the second one. The right amount of everything for me.

    Why am I thinking of argyle socks now? LOL! I like the first one the best.

    I wanna see the triple treat blocks. Please.

    They’re all good, but isn’t it amazing what a simple addition of the 9 (or looks like) patch does. Think I like the 1st one.


    • Marie,

      The 9 patch block really does make a difference. The theory I was taught said you should only mix blocks drafted on the same grid, but I am finding that it is yet another rule which can be broken.
