June Mini Madness - Block 7 Single Irish Chain

Today's Block is a Single Irish Chain.  There are lots of pieces in this litle block, but it's actually quite easy to sew - just take your time and be patient!
First, lets do the cutting.  

For 3 inch block, cut one 1 ½ inch square and eight 1 inch squares of your background.  From Red cut four 1 x 2 ½ inch rectangles and four 1 x 2 ½ inch rectangles.

For 6 inch block, cut one 2 ½ inch square and eight 1 ½ inch squares of your background.  From red cut four 1 ½ x 2 ½ inch rectangles and four 1 ½ x 4 ½ inch rectangles.

Next, lay out all of your pieces to get prepared for sewing.
Sew the center patches into a simple (but small) nine patch unit.
Next repeat and sew the larger units in the same manner!  The pieces are small, so you need to be patient, but you can do this!

So lovely!  Are your piecing skills growing with the practice?  I hope so!

As promised, I am having a linky party so you can add your links, and I'll draw a winner for a surprise bundle of fabric left from a previous Island Batik project!  If you don't know how to link up, just send email your picture to me at and I will take care of it for you.  The linky party ends at midnight on Wednesday the 10th and I'll announce the winner on the 11th!

I can't wait to see your progress!  Hope you are having as much fun as I am - I'll share my second set of blocks with you on Monday.  If you want to see me sew them together, check out my Facebook page

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Tried doing the link. Not sure if it worked or not.
