    Any interest in doing another Sew-Along?

    Good morning, fellow quilters!

    I have a huge pile of 2 1/2" squares and have been thinking of making a scrappy Double Irish Chain. The perks of a Sew-Along include no postage & no deadlines. Plus each quilter can choose their own background.

    If there is enough interest, I'll start a thread!

    I'll pass on this one. I realized recently that I could spend the rest of my sewing career doing nothing but stuff with 2.5" squares and strips (not that there is anything wrong with that!) and so I packed up a flat rate box and mailed them off to someone else so I could concentrate on other things. I'll let her know about this thread

    I will provide basic directions that participants can modify as needed, i.e. background fabric color. The big advantage of doing a Sew-Along is that you don't have to mail anything to me by a due date. Yay!

    We will each work on our Irish Chain and cheer each other on through this thread and post lots of pictures to encourage our fellow quilting buddies.

    I'm glad to see we have some interest. Let's see if we can get some more interest and, if yes, we can start next week.

    I would be interested in doing this sew-along and making an scrappy Irish Chain. I have made one from Quilt in a day book. Would love to make another Irish Chain.

    I am interested but not sure if I can keep up with the rest of you. May be just a lurking but this sew-along sounds so fun. I will keep checking on the progress of interested people.

    I will be lurking and thinking about this one. I may join along. On my bucket list to do is a 2 color Double Irish Chain. Love the idea of a sew-a-long.

    You are welcome to lurk! LOL The cool thing about Sew-Alongs is that you can work on this at your own pace, in between other projects, maybe as a leader/ender kind of thing. So many choices!

    I'll definitely lurk. Made an Eleanor Burns Single Irish Chain in a Day about 10 years ago. Need to make another one.

    Interested for sure. I have many 2.5's that have become my favorite pre-cut. Let's say, there is a "31 bag" nearly full of these little friends who need to get into rows so they can march out of my quilt room and into someone else's home.

    Same for me.
    it has been on my to-do list for at least 1 year but I am so slow at quilting (too many other interest and golfing season is at my door step loll) I usually make one quilt in the course of 1 year and I have 2 in progress... I'll be lurking for sure and who knows? it might rain a lot this summer and that would give me more time indoor... to quilt loll

    As you can see, we'll be sewing 2 blocks - 1 with our scrappy squares and 1 as a background block so we will each be able to choose what color we want for our background.

    I made a triple Irish chain two years ago but I have enough cut to make another one. Maybe I should hop on this and do it at the same time.
