Irish Chain Crib Quilt

modified irish chain quilt on MostlySewing.comFinally finished one of the baby quilts I’ve been working on! Probably a good thing, since my friend’s baby is due next week-ish…
I thought it was taking me a while, but turns out I was really watching too much Gray’s Anatomy. Too distracting. Once I closed myself in the craft room, I finished it up pretty quickly.

my original plan was a square quilt, but then I liked it so much I added more rows to make it areal crib quilt. Required a lot of little squares….

My pretty little stacks of squares 🙂 Just used scraps from my collection, and I love it!

Laying out the squares – apparently this is not the right way to make this type of quilt? I should read tutorials and directions before I start sewing…. but it turned pretty well 🙂
