Mini Irish Chain

I am participating in a block of the month "class" in which I am making the chain blocks in this pattern. When I saw this Mini Irish Chain on Terrie Sandelin's blog, I thought it would be fun to make one and use it as one of my setting blocks. I'm hoping it will look like a quilt-within-a-quilt. It was so much fun to make! The teeny squares in the nine patches started as one inch squares. They finished just under half an inch.

I am in the process of designing other chain blocks that incorporate one or more mini nine patches for the other setting blocks.


  1. Very pretty. The pieces are soooo tiny, I would never be able to do that. Quilting is a beautiful art.
