Two-Color Irish Chain Quilt-Along: Week 7

Tuesday, February 18, 2020

Hello hello!
It's week 7 of the Two-Color Irish Chain Quilt-Along!
Can you believe there's only one week left after this?  It's gone by so fast!
I hope you're staying on schedule because soon you will have a beautiful quilt top!

This week's assignment is quite simple.
Just sew two A sections that you made last week onto opposite sides 
of the 6 1/2" x 10 1/2" color 2 rectangles to create the Alternate Blocks.

Make 31

Make 40

1. Sew an A section to the top of the 6 1/2" x 10 1/2" rectangle.  Repeat with the 
rest of the 6 1/2" x  10 1/2" rectangles for your chosen quilt size.

2. Sew the remaining A sections to the opposite side of the 6 1/2" x 10 1/2" rectangles.

3. Press the seam allowances toward the A sections.

4. Now sit back and enjoy the fact that all your blocks are D-O-N-E!

That's it for this week!
Have a great day!


  1. Up to yesterday I have been behind on this sewalong, but yesterday our puppy napped for a few hours right beside me and I was able to sew all my alternate blocks, so now I am ahead....yay!!

  2. This quilt has become my weekly treat! I look forward to my Wednesday Irish chain sewing. Thanks for hosting this qal.

    1. I'm so glad to hear that! Thank you for being here!


  3. I've got all my blocks done and put together, but now I'm deliberating whether I want to add a border or not...or rather whether I have the fabric I need to do a border without having to buy more fabric lol

  4. Thank you so much for all your hard work Amber. This is my first quilt and you have made the journey real easy and beenmake a quilt is something I've always wanted to do but never had the confidence. Between you and my sister I've managed it. Thanks 😊

    1. Oh, you're so welcome! I'm so excited for you! You picked a good pattern to make your first quilt with! Way to go!
