Default Puzzle Me This....

I have several unfinished quilts that I would like to complete...but I don't have any instructions...

I am hoping if I show you pictures of what I have someone will know the pattern and give some direction.

This one has a few complete blocks as shown. One long strip as shown 3.5" wide x 44" long. I have more fabric to finish this...but what is it and how do I do it? I know how to make the block...what is the long strip going to be? Small corner blocks maybe?

Any help appreciated

Wow! I feel ya'. I received my mil's stash and ufo's at her passing. I have 5-6 of them I have been looking at off and on for 5 years trying to figure out what she meant for them to be. I actually just got one top done for a large king size bed. I just finally came up with my own plan that used all the pieces (almost) that she had.
now to figure out how to sandwich and quilt the bugger

See if this tutorial will help you . You need to cut the long strips up into smaller units and then rearrange them and sew them back together.

It looks like it might be the pieced block for a double Irish Chain. The other block would be that floral with the light tiny floral appliqued to the corners.

That is what I think also a Double Irish Chain. I went and got my Quilt in a Day Irish Chain book and it looks exactly like what is called Block A, Block B would have the floral as the middle sections and your white with print would be the corner stone blocks on that.

I must not be seeing this...I kinda get how the long strip can turn into an irish chain, but how does the block fit? I will look at some of my books and see if I have any directions.

I appreciate the insight...I would not have ever thought of this.

Just keep up the good work. Trying to figure someone else's ideas is a real challenge. Too bad we can't just climb inside the person's brain and find the right file folder in the brain containing the information.....................kidding, of course
