Irish Chain Quilt Piecing Class - Lexington

This Irish Chain is made with yardage cut into strips. I have made them with jelly rolls strips, but I like the way this is basically a two color quilt, 
with a backing that is the same fabric as the chain. You will need a
 6.5 x 24.5 ruler and a sharp blade in your rotary cutter. The fabric requirement
are for a throw size quilt
 that is about 48 x 54.  This quilt can, of course, be made larger by making more blocks, however, this is a good size for in your favorite chair or on the beach or at the pool! 

Please cut your strips before coming to the class. We are always here to help, and coming in before the class or on a Wednesday during a Sit and Sew would be the perfect opportunity, especially if you're a beginner who may not be comfortable cutting the strips. Let us help you get this project started on the right foot. 

​Color 1 SOLID 2 3/4 yard
- background solid 2 yards
- outer border 3/4 yard
Color 2 NON DIRECTIONAL PRINT (the chain) 1 3/4 yard
- the chain 1 yard
- inner border flange-optional 1/4 yard
- binding 1/2 yard
Backing 3 yards (I used color 2 fabric)
Good quality neutral colored thread
Throw size batting

Please cut the strips before class:
From COLOR 1: cut (8) 2 1/2 inches x WOF strips (Width Of Fabric; i.e. from selvage to selvage)
AND cut (28) 6 1/2 inch squares
AND cut (6) 3 1/2 x WOF for outer border
From COLOR 2: cut (10) 2 1/2inch x WOF strips
AND (optional) cut 1 1/4 inch strips for flange border
AND (6) 2 1/4 inch x WOF for binding

You may choose to skip the inner flange border, and make your outer border from the print fabric (color 2). It is up to you, but be sure to buy the 3/4 yard needed for the outer border from the desired fabric.
