Island Chain

This is such a fun quilt!  I saw several pictures of it on line.

I think the pattern is in a book called Scrap Basket Sensations (available at Amazon)
Of course, I didnt have the book , or the pattern, so had to do some figuring out for this one!! It was not all that difficult, but I did have to rearrange several times!

I used a jelly roll (Sweet Serenade by Moda)  and then extra fabric for the borders and sashing. For the  backing, I found some darker brown fabric on sale that I thought really complimented the quilt top.

I quilted this very simply with straight lines echoing the lines in the pattern, and a large zig zag pattern on the outer border.

This is now one of my very favourites!  I love the colours and the simple geometric design.
mmmmm.....guess I cant give this one away either !!

Linking up to TGIFF today over at The Carpenters Daughter who Quilts.


  1. Good on you in figuring out the pattern - it's just about placement. Love the fabrics and colors.

  2. did you figure this one out without the book. You did a wonderful job on it. The straight line quilting works perfect for it. Good job...make that outstanding!


Please leave a comment or just say hello....It's nice to know I am not talking to myself!
