This is the final quilt in a series of 4 quilts made for a family with deep Irish roots. The father would travel to Ireland over the years and bring back Irish kilts and traditional dresses. All these garments were kept alongside some gorgeous childhood coats.
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.
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.
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!
