Irish log Cabin OP 26, 27, 28

A Single Irish Chain block is pieced like a Chimneys and Cornerstones, a variation of the Log Cabin block, so it seemed logical to me to colour the Irish Chain blocks like a Cornerstones block … and mix in the other Irish Chain blocks.

Interesting effect with some of the blocks washed out!

I have just realized that I have only used Single and Triple Irish Chain blocks … need to find more time to play with these!

I also seem to have misplaced Irish Log Cabin designs in straight settings … setting out on a search party to find that project file.

    I love this selection. Not sure about the middle one’s idea.


    • Marie,

      Thank you.

      I like playing around with contrast, especially washing out some contrast until it is very faded, and would quilt the faded blocks with a contrast thread. In this design it would showcase the quilting which is usually more hidden on pieced blocks, especially now most quilting of pieced blocks seems to be in the ditch.

    I like the first one. Reminds me of star dust or four leaf clovers scattered over the top as it is Irish

    I just recently found this post. I fell in love with the first design and would love to make it. I can’t figure out the math though. Do you have a pattern? I mean, other than the digital picture? Thanks.
