Civil War Quilt – Block of the Week

This week the Civil War Block of the Week on Barbara Brackman’s blog is the Irish Chain block.  I  love love love the Irish Chain block!

I made this week’s block with fabrics from Moda called Neesha by Sentimental Studios.  I have been using these fabrics through most of the project.  Here is the Irish Chain block:

My very first quilt ever (made in December 2002) was a Christmas Irish Chain quilt.  I dug it out and put it out on the lawn to snap a picture.  Of course, Rascal Dog (Dog is his last name) had to participate:

And more recently I made my grandson Oscar a double Irish Chain quilt – which I blogged about just this past week in Oscar’s Baby Quilts.

The Civil War Block of the Week continues to be fun and the Civil War Quilts 2011 Flickr group is a wonderful, sharing and encouraging online community.  I am so glad to be involved.  Join us; there is always room for more and it’s never too late!

Have a great holiday weekend, ya’ll!
