I purchased a large bag of fabric at a garage sale and in it were the beginnings of a quilt I would love to finish but alas, no pattern. There are many white blocks about 8 1/2 by 11 inches, many green strips 2 inches wide and quite long, many red strips the same size, one white strip the same size and one white that is 5 inches wide and quite long. Already pieced together are the following three: one made of two inch strips only using 5 strips red/green/red/green/red for a finished size of 7 inches wide......next is a strip using only 2 inch strips red/green/red/white/red/green/red for a finished size of just over 9 1/2 inches wide.....and last is a strip using 2 inch red and green and the 5 inch white in this pattern green/red/white/red/green for a finished width of 10 inches. There appears to be enough cut to make one more of each of these. Does ANYONE have any idea what pattern this might be? Your help, of any kind, is greatly appreciated!
Can you post of photo of what you have> To post photos, in that strip above the message you are writing there is a little green film strip. Click on that. after you have gone through browse, or however you get it on. I think it is insert. . . save. . . post. And it takes a while in between steps. So just wait a while. Meanwhile I'll play around with your description. I love a puzzle.
By the way welcome to the group. Lots of helpful people here.
breaks out the camera and thank you Patti!
This is just a guess, lea, but I think the strip sets are meant to be cut into subsets and made into some kind of chain.

Or a courthouse steps?
Are the short red ones the right length to go on the ends of the big white rectangles?
And are the long green strips long enough to be cut in two pieces and go on the red-green-red-green-red strip sets?
I bet the small white rectangle and short white strips are left overs.
Any chance this might be a Celtic Knot or Celtic Chain? Just a guess because the green and gold fabric IS a Celtic Knot
The 2 inch red strips are 41 inches long
The 2 inch green strips are 36 inches long
The 2 inch white strip is 39 inches long
The 5 inch white strip is 80 inches long
it could be a celtic knot, i haven't made one pieced before. go to google images and type in pieced celtic knot and see what you come up with
Lea, I think you have the answer. Look at this website, it has several quilt patterns, good for ideas.
It looks like the beginnings of a triple Irish chain. You could rework it to a double if you so desired
Oops just looked at the picture again not a triple as there is only two colors interesting could for sure be make into a double
You ladies ROCK! I will check out all the ideas and let ya know what I come up with!!!!
