Dizzy Days Irish Chain featuring Only You

Hello Riley Blake friends!! It’s Melissa Corry from Happy Quilting and today I am thrilled to be sharing my newest quilt finish with you featuring the Only You Fabric Collection . Who doesn’t like making an Irish Chain Quilt, but with a twist! The Dizzy Days Irish Chain quilt  is so fun to make and it is Pre-cut friendly as well as Scrappy friendly, because we all know, we have plenty of scraps!!!

I love making quilts for the family cabin, and when I saw this Only You fabric, I knew it would be just perfect for one of the twin size bunk beds up the mountain. I mean, how can you not love Smokey Bear 🙂 (and randomly enough, it wasn’t until I was making this quilt that I realized his name is Smokey Bear and not Smokey “the” Bear ) I love the beautiful earthy colors of this line and the prints are just so fun. It’s just perfect for the “out in the wild” kids 🙂

And while this might look a little crazy, it truly is a great beginner quilt with basic quilting techniques.   You are making a “Single Irish Chain” quilt, but there is that twist I mentioned. All of the “chain pieces” are different sizes.    And the fun thing is, the random layout of the blocks means no two quilts will look alike.  Your quilt will be your own original Dizzy Days Irish Chain quilt.  

And when it came time to quilt mine, I opted for all over meander.  I love how this gives the look of a twisting path weaving through the woods, just perfect for our Only You quilt 😉   And I just love how my favorite 402 So Fine blends on all of those mountain prints!!   So great.  

 And like all of my Happy Quilting patterns, the the nice thing is, the Dizzy Days Irish Chain Pattern has multiple size options, so you can make whatever size you like. As I mentioned, this is the twin size for a bunk bed, but you can make it from a baby size all the way to a king size 😉   And again, it is an amazing pattern if you need to do some scrap busting!!  I already plan to make it again in scrappy reds and greens for a Christmas quilt 😉 

And that is my Dizzy Days Irish Chain Quilt featuring the Only You Fabric Collection ! I hope you have enjoyed this post and consider making your own Dizzy Days Irish Chain Quilt!!!
