Sewcial Bee Sampler Week 20

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.

Woohoo! That's the fourth row complete in our quilt top - only five more blocks to finish and then it will be time to add sashing strips.  Getting really excited to be nearing the finish!


  1. Your red and white version is gorgeous! It would make an awesome quilt.

  2. A great new block added! So love how these blocks are coming together! My favorite blocks are the ones that are more skimpy with color. They look so delicate and so eye-catching to me. I wish I had the patience to make this quilt, I love it so much.

  3. That sure would look great in a quilt

  4. What a smart idea to use picmonkey collage for creating possible quilt patterns. I loved seeing the possibilities. I am loving how your sampler quilt is shaping up. Adore all those colours.

  5. Interesting work - you blocks are so amazingly colorful !!!


Go ahead...say something! Got a question for me? Ask it! I can't wait to hear from you... so start writing... and thanks in advance for letting me know you're sharing in my online adventures. Hugs and happiness to you!
