Irish chain blocks are really popular traditional blocks. The Single Irish Chain quilt block is one of the simplest and easiest to sew. Maybe someday I will make a whole scrappy quilt using this block pattern. As you must have already guessed we do try to give you many beginner level quilt blocks. Well this one is especially easy and a total scrapbuster! Just decide on your fabrics and let the block shine in your quilt.
Cutting Instructions for the Single Irish Chain quilt block
Always be careful of the colors you are choosing. They can easily mess up your block (or quilt) or on the contrary, make it shine! I prefer to make a test block before cutting pieces for the whole quilt. It makes me more confident to continue and make the whole thing.
And always remember FINISHED SIZE means the size it will be in a completed quilt. The measurements given already have the ¼ inch allowance included.
|Finished Block Size||Cut 1 squares from Dark fabric and 4 squares from Light Fabric||Cut 8 squares from Dark fabric and Light Fabric|
Names of the block
Criss cross quilt, Simple cross, Pennsylvania
