Simple Irish Chain block

Wow, funtime again. I love starting a new project. I have a purpose in life that way. I can't wait to get up in the mornings to get busy on my "projects." What in the world do people do who don't have "projects?" I don't have a clue what I would do with my time!
This new project is such fun and so simple to do.
Step 1: Cut strips of fabric (three colors, light medium and dark) 1 1/2" wide across the width of the fabrics. Sew together in this order: dark, light, medium. Sew the next strip set: Light, dark, light. Sew the next set: dark, light, dark.
The first set, dark, light, medium is used for every 3 1/2" block by rotating it around to put the dark squares in different locations. I suggest that you print off the pattern and color in the blocks as they will be sewn. This helps to get the squares in the right places, (especially if you are as dyslexic as I am!) MERCY
