Scrappy Irish Chain Quilt Pattern


The Scrappy Irish Chain Quilt Pattern is a fun and finishible quilt pattern. It goes together quickly and uses fabric pre-cuts.

This is one simple quilt pattern. What makes it so simple? The Scrappy Irish Chain Quilt uses 2.5″ fabric rolls and 9-Patch Strip Piecing. You could gather some of those leftover strips from previous rolls and make it super scrappy. Either way, it’s easy to get started and quick to finish. If you don’t mind cutting some strips, it’s the perfect quilt for using scraps.

It’s ideal for telling any color story. Think about other color possibilities with this quilt. Some examples would be a two color quilt (think red & white) or different shades for an ombré effect. No matter what you choose, I’m excited to see what colors you come up with ☺️

This is destined to become a favorite quilt pattern because…

  1. It uses 2.5″ pre-cut strips (like a Jelly Roll!) All of those neatly tied together strips are ready to piece.
  2. It would look amazing in solids or your favorite designer’s latest collection.​ And, it’s perfect if you want to do a two-color Irish Chain (think red and white!)
  3. This quilt is not only simple to assemble, but it goes together really fast! I call this the magic of strip piecing. Seriously, if you set aside a few days, this one can be assembled, quilted, and bound over a weekend. 
  4. Speaking of accuracy. All of those 2.5″ blocks will magically nest together and make beautiful 9-patch blocks that perfectly fit together and make you look like a quilting genius!
  5. It’s both traditional and scrappy. In my mind, it doesn’t get much better than this. Use up those old leftover strips and make a perfectly scrappy quilt which is way better that all those pesky scraps sitting in a bin somewhere not getting used!
  6. This pattern is designed for a 43″ x 54″ Throw, however, it’s not hard to make this quilt larger.
