concrete Irish chain on walk

This was another one of those unfinished projects that has been hanging around waiting so patiently for me to finish it.

And did it ever!  I love how they bring out the best in each other.

The speckled concrete grey print was something that I found at JoAnn.  The brights are from Amy Butler’s line Lark.  The whites are a mix of low volumes from my stash.

I quilted it along the white diagonals in white for a subtle emphasis on the chain pattern.

I pieced the back with a mix of prints.

Mostly grey and white, but I couldn’t resist adding some more color with the firework print.

It was a chilly day for a photo shoot, but thankfully my helper was able to keep warm.
