I always had the Irish Chain quilt on my bucket lists. During my 16 days of thumb twiddling during the go't shut down, I dug into my stash of 2x2 squares. This was the third and final project until my sack of squares is full again. I started with a 2 1/2 gallon ziplock bag of 2x2 squares that I have saved for a few years now (I could tell by the vintage of some of the fabrics that it has been at least 10 years for some of them to be used). I am now down to one sandwich bag full, so I'll have to do some more projects not involving scraps before I'll be back into the 2x2 scrappy quilt bases. :) This is actually 2 quilt blocks, one of which is a 7x7 grid with the light colors making an x through the center and then one in the center of each outer side. The second block started with an 8 1/2 inch square, 4 4 3/4 inch strips, and 20 2x2 squares. I had the border fabric in my stash, as well as the dark green sashing. So, one more quilt top from what most would have thrown out for scrap.
