Scrappy Chain Quilt Tutorial

To celebrate the arrival of SIMPLE PATCHWORK book and FRONT YARD fabric collection, I'm presenting a Scrappy Chain Tutorial on instagram. We all love chain quilts. They use up scraps galore and are simply beautiful.

See the below for the quilt design. It is inspired by the Irish Chain and Postage Stamp quilts, but the blocks are set on point and the setting triangles carry the center chain for a smooth chain finish. There's no need to worry about cutting and piecing all those little squares individually. We will be using the strip piecing method to save us time.

For a limited time, the instructions are available for free download (Pattern is no longer available for free, but is available for purchase here.). I'll be making the sample quilt for this pattern and posting my assembly process on Instagram and Facebook. Be sure to follow/like me there to stay up-to-date on my progress. If you're joining in on the fun, then share your progress on instagram. Please use my instagram handle (@sandra.clemons) and hashtags (#makeitblossom and #frontyardfabric). I'm be sure to comment on your progress.

The fabric requirements are listed below and includes 2 quilt sizes. I'll be starting my quilt in the next week. How about you?

Happy stitching,
