    Love 'em...first one looks like asian bento box, could call it east meets west lol, and second pattern, very ingenious, and easy for strip quilting.

Isn't it great how designing can be such a stress buster? 8) Keep it up, you're doing great.
    Actually, I did think about using a Bright Hopes block for an Irish Chain. Just haven't gotten around to it.

    I took the Rail Road/Irish Chain and filled in the empty spaces with...well, even more Rail Road Blocks, but in a different and lighter color than the woven chain. I like this even better than the first one...lot of texture going on here. :D
