Fix and repair

Here are some of the blocks after I ripped out a square on each of the sides. No fun at all.
These are the squares that will get put back in the 2 1/2in square bucket to be used again.
Here is the alternating block for this Irish Chain quilt. It is modified for quicker sewing. Instead of individual blocks sewn together in the center I measured and cut according to the measurements. Less seams. 
See how it is next to the pieced scrappy block.
Can you see the Irish chain look with the modified block. I changed the block from the one Bonnie Hunter uses in her tutorial. I made it bigger than she did. She was my inspiration for this scrappy quilt. It is listed in her Tutorials under Leaders and Enders. Bonnie's blog is Hopefully you can find a scrappy quilt design on her blog she has many to choose from. Chris
