Irish Chain Twist - Improvisational Piecing

Even though I met with friends on Saturday to sew up some blocks for a donation quilt, I still found time that afternoon to get this week's assignment finished for Happy Quilting's Irish Chain Twist Quilt Along.





Thankfully, the sewing this week was really simple and could be chain pieced quickly.  I am using some old 30's reproduction fabrics that continue to show up in my stash.  I didn't have quite enough yardage of the peach print to make all of my blocks so I substituted a solid peach for the remaining blocks.  We shall see how this affects the layout.


 




It is not too late to join in the fun.  If you have never done one of Melissa's Quilt Along, I highly recommend them.  The instructions are clear and the weekly assignments are broken down so they are easy to accomplish.

Looks like a great project to use up some stash. I have a stash of 1930 fat quarters that I've used in two quilts and still haven't been able to use them up.

Cute! I don't think substituting with a solid will be a problem at all. :) www.quiltartbymegan.com
