Scroll down for a tutorial for those new to Electric Quilt 8 on drafting a modern Irish Chain quilt.
Tech Know Quilters Irish Chain Challenge
I challenged the Master's Group within Tech Know Quilters to design an Irish Chain quilt. Here were some of the early submissions.
A great group of quilts to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.
Tech Know Quilter's only opens enrollment to new members a few times a year. There will be an open enrollment at the end of this month to those that are on the wait list. So please sign up for the wait list if you are interested in receiving more information on the program.
Note that Tech Know Quilter's classes are all virtual and can be completed at your convenience from the comfort of your own home.
Draft Your Own Modern Irish Chain Quilt
It can sometimes be a challenge to figure out how to take a very traditional block and make it modern. Here is my approach. This would be a great project for those just starting with Electric Quilt.
I then set the three blocks in an on point layout. Note that the setting triangles and corners used the second Clip and Flip option.
I then used Benartex' Geo Pop Collection by Christa Watson to recolor the quilt. Geo Pop is the free Fabric of the Month download that you can still download from Do You EQ.
This is a great beginner project for someone new to Electric Quilt 8. Please share your quilts in the Learning EQ Facebook Group.
