It is interesting that this Irish Chain is actually created totally with Improved Nine Patch blocks. Positioning them as the maker did makes for a lovely diagonal Single Irish Chain. The same red squares were turned on point to create a very effective diamond border. Quilted with patterns of diamonds. Measurements are 36" x 44". Columbia, Missouri origin; circa 1880.
