DESCRIPTION: Pieced quilt with three fabrics: one is solid green (light, faded); one is white; and one is red with green pattern.
The pattern on front is the “Irish Chain” pattern (also referred to as “double chain” by donor) in which stepped squares are formed by diagonal rows of the contrasting colored fabrics. The interiors of the stepped squares are quilted in the diamond pattern. The border consists of a wide (7-7 3/4″ variable) border of the red fabric surrounded by a narrow border of the green. The red portion of the border is quilted in a modified swag pattern.
