    Please explain what to do at Quick Links to get this thread to come up. I'm going to do RW&B with some gold thrown in. I was given a bunch of 2.5 inch squares in these colors.

    2.5" squares? I may join in. Just finishing up a scrappy big quilt that used a lot of my blue 2.5"s, but I have lots of other colors. It makes so much more sense to have these in a quilt rather than stacks in a box!

    Looking forward to pulling some bright fabrics out of my stash for this one. Just gotta decide on my background fabric.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    I think I'm going to be in. I have so many scraps to use up. Once I get some instructions I'll spend an evening cutting 2 1/2" squares.

    Our quilt blocks will be 10 1/2" unfinished & 10" finished, based on 2 1/2" squares.Name:  scrappy irish chain blocks 2 (2018_12_26 16_09_53 UTC).jpg

    In our main scrappy block, please pay attention to the 4 background squares! Makes a huge difference in the layout. In the above picture, it's the 4 white squares.

    Here are the details for our background blocks. For each block, you need:
    4 scrappy blocks in the corners.
    From your background fabric:
    one 6 1/2" x 10 1/2" rectangle piece
    two strips 2 1/2" x 6 1/2"

    Sew according to the diagram.

    Sew according to the diagram.
    Hi! I'm very new here and a new quilter. Is there a diagram somewhere that I've missed? Thanks!

    I think she meant photo, rather than diagram. It will be easy to sew these two blocks like the photo shows, using the dimensions given for the white pieces and 2.5 colored squares.
