Rick Danner I immediately think of Beleek China. Clean minimalist design. For me, these quilts would be full of quilting. I just got a huge set of asymmetrically curved long sleeve rulers that can create some delicious interlocking designs that would really set these quilts on fire.

Joyce Drenth While browsing Pinterest, I came across an interesting crossover design by the Irish chain and decided that I wanted to try to figure out the layout.

Kristy Goodin Soard, as I read the words that crossed blocks, my thoughts immediately went to a sweet rosebud block that I had seen on Pinterest.

Julie Pedersen designed the block on the right and then played with different rotations and a precise layout. A very unique approach to a very traditional block.

Design your own modern Irish chain quilt

Sometimes it can 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 getting started with Electric Quilt.

I started designing a very simple Irish chain block. You will probably find this block in the EQ library – or, if not, in BlockBase. However, I think it can be faster to design it with EasyDraw.

I decided to dye the block with some neutral fabrics in the EQ8 standard palette.

Then I used Lucky coincidence with the Clip and flip Option to create two variations of the block. With Clip and flip, EQ takes the top left quadrant of the block and creates different rotations of this quadrant in a four patch setting.

I then put the three blocks in an on-point layout. Note that the second option “Clip and Flip” was used for the setting triangles and corners.
