Time for the next block to be released in The Sewcial Bee Sampler (a fun online sew along), hosted by Sharon Holland and Maureen Cracknell. The block for this week is an Irish Chain Variation. (for the free download to make this or the previous blocks, visit Maureen's or Sharon's blog).

I love that I was able to use squares that were already cut and waiting in my scrap stash! The block is very straight forward in design and this allowed me to use twenty four different low volume fabrics for the background, plus another four for the borders. I was surprised to find so many prints that contained red on white in my stash, but it made me very happy to find a block that I could put them all into. ;o)
This block would make a wonderful quilt all on its own! I couldn't resist making a mock up using the collage option of PicMonkey to see how this would look.
