WIP: Double Irish Chain in Red and White

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

This is the Double Irish Chain quilt top I worked on while on vacation at the Oregon Coast this past week.  The center part is done, and now I am on to the seminole borders.  They will take more time to make than a solid strip border but will be much more striking in combination with the center piece.

I am using Eleanor Burns' Irish Chain in a Day:  Single and Double book.  I really like the color directions, especially the instruction on which way to press the seams.  This seemingly small tidbit of information at the right time makes quilt top assembly go much easier later on, and if a pattern does not contain this information, I may not purchase another from that creator.  Really.  It is that big of a deal to me!
