Tangled Irish Chain Blues 18, 19 and 20

Why have I got a Tangled Irish Chain and a Tangled Irish Chain Bues series?

Because the original project file was getting a bit oversized and I thought I should start a new one and took the opportunity to introduce a different colour scheme as well.

Some variations are very similar to the original file, but a few tiny modifications and different colour add up to a very different effect.

Talking about colour and fabric and all that … reminds me that I mentioned a few days ago that I hadn’t tried rearranging Triple Irish Chain blocks … and as tomorrow is Wednesday I will share the first of yet another series of Irish Chain variations with you on Thursday … and to stay with the theme will show some more Irish Log Cabin variations tomorrow!

    Love the name. Irish Chain Blues. There should be a soulful voice with a harmonica and acoustic guitar accompanying the pictures.


    • Karen,

      I dug out some blues to listen to because of the title, and some days when I share one I swap whatever is in the CD player for some blues at some time during the day!

    I like the 3rd design quite alot! Even though it is blue, I can picture a garden layout.


    • Laura,

      There are quite a few od these designs which look like very formal gardens. I guess there should be a shamrock in each of those gardens for luck.

        Yup…I do see lots of formal gardens in traditional quilts, or new designs based upon traditional blocks. The reverse happens as well…I see quilts when I visit gardens too. There are some wonderful negative spaces in your Irish designs where you could quilt in those lucky shamrocks!
