Judy L's UFO Challenge

WIP Wednesday. Yeah! I am in synch with WIP day!! When I started this quilt I really expected it to read maroon. It reads green....how did that happen? Oh well, I still love it! This is my Irish Chain center. I am going to see what I can do with the borders to pop the lavendar and maroon. This is an indoor pic so it doesnt show the true color. I will take an outdoor pic once I add the borders.
If you are interested go to my UFOs link and look at the pic of the two blocks that make up this quilt and see what color you thought it would read.

I've always wanted to make an Irish Chain, something else always catches my eye and the Irish Chain get pushed to the bottom of the list. Good luck with the borders.

I like the colors in your quilt. It does read more green than maroon.

I have a triple Irish Chain I'm making with Jinny Beyer fabrics. It's my "snow day" quilt. I only work on it when it's snowing and I'm home or I need a break from my other projects.

Pretty quilt. It does read green but it's still very pretty as it is! I think the maroon color would be more saturated if the color was a solid or small print, but you can bring out the maroon in the border you mentioned.
