    Irish Chain Quilt question

    I bought the Bella Solids Jelly Roll in white to make the Irish chain. Now I need to get white yardage for the solid squares. If I don't match the white of the jelly roll will it look "off"? The closest color match they have is Bella Solids white bleached. Any thoughts?

    for this pattern. yes, it would matter to me.
    Whites are tricky to match.

      I definitely would want the fabrics to match exactly. I cut my own background strips because I wanted the fabrics to match.

        Like Jean, I cut my own. I ended up using a white on white polka dot fabric for my white. I think it added a great dimension to my Irish Chain quilt.

          Agreed! Set that jelly roll aside for a different project. Get the right amount you need to make your quilt from the same white fabric. The only way it would be okay to add a different white would be if you were making a scrappy quilt using lots of different whites. Not the case with the quilt you are making.

            I agree with the rest - I'm working on that very quilt now and I had to fine the exact match or I thought it would look "funny". Luckily my LQS had the yardage for the solid. Hope that helps!

              Bella solid white is sold in many shops, if you know the exact color you should be able to find the matching yardage
