Chained 5 Patch - Page 2

Sew the very center strip out of your Color 1, 3 and 4  2-1/2" squares, then add two Color1/Color 3 strips to the sides of that center strip. Sew a Color 4  2-1/2" x 6-1/2" strip to the top and bottom of that unit...

Now add a Color 2/ Color 3/ Color 1/ Color 4 strip to each side of the previously made unit...

Next add a Color 3/ Color 2/ Color 4 strip to each side of the larger complete the block! Note that this is virtually the same as a Double Irish Chain, but because of the Color layout, somewhere back in history, it took on a new name! 

The quilt as shown here is a simple four blocks by five, with prairie points all around... Click here for the Prairie Points Instructional!
