    I really can't see this quilt in wool. At least not with this pattern in the fabric.

This is a quick quilt to make that looks a lot more complicated than it actually is!  Strip piecing and rotary cutting make this quilt come together super fast and easy, and looks great.  Choose a pretty floral or small toile for the main fabric, and half the work is done already - the rest is as easy as 1, 2, 3. 
Floral Irish Chain looks like a difficult quilt because of all the small pieces, but is actually quite easy to sew using simple and fast strip piecing techniques! This is a quilt that can be easily finished in a day, and makes a wonderful wall hanging using a pretty floral fabric. This quilt is good practice for rotary cutting and strip piecing, and the finished quilt can be quite dramatic and sophisticated. The small size makes it great for a wall hanging, table topper or baby quilt. When choosing fabric, look at the size of your floral. A very small floral won't have the visual interest, but if it is too large the design is lost in the small scale of the quilt. Flowers around 2 - 3 inches look really good in this design!

I have been quilting for 25 years, and thoughout all these years one of my favorite things has been to design my own projects.  I have been challenged during the last few years to try my hand at actually writing these ideas up and sharing them with others - so here I am!  It's always a challenge to learn new skills, and pattern writing is a tricky one as people all learn in different ways!  I try to include plenty of illustrations in my patterns as well as clear written instructions.  I prefer rotary cutting, but do include templates as necessary.  EQ7 is a wonderful help for drafting blocks and making templates, I couldn't do what I do without this!
