with Charles Johns-Lee
Welcome new instructor Charles Johns- Lee to Calico Gals! Newly transplanted from NYC, Charles brings years of quilting and quilting education experience to Central New York. Join Charles and make a piece of history while learning to piece the classic Irish Chain pattern.
The earliest record of the Irish Chain pattern was in 1807 and by the 1820’s
it became common. It continues to be popular, in part because it is a relatively easy pattern, and also because it can showcase decorative quilting. Learn to create the two different blocks and arrange them to form a secondary design. Choose your own layout: Single (two fabrics), Double (three fabrics) or Triple (four fabrics) Irish Chain. Great for Beginners, but all levels are welcome!
