Irish Chain Quilt Block

Welcome!! So excited that Melissa from Happy Quilting asked us to be part of her blog tour for her new book, Irish Chain Quilts.

I got the chance to review a copy of the book and it is really cool!! A huge variety of Irish Chain Quilts.  We were asked to choose one quilt to make a block with for a charity quilt and it was so hard to choose!!

I am so excited to see how this quilt turns out, Melissa will post it at the end of this week!

Her book is available through her blog (signed copies) also through Martingale and Amazon.
