Scrappy Block Challenge

My first block is made with 4 - 5" squares.
The light pieces are 5" squares cut in half 
and the corner stones are a 5" square quartered.

The 2nd block consists of 4 - 4 square blocks.
Any size squares could be used, 
the sample is made with 16 - 3" squares.

Either block could be laid out in an updated
Irish Chain pattern.
Yes, I still lay out designs with pencil and graph paper :)

Thanks for the challenge Sarah!

I'm still working on cutting up my scraps but
I'm thankful for the challenge to transform my messy scrap box 
into neat, ready to use squares.
And I'm planning to put those squares to work very soon!

Crossing my fingers, I'd love to win a prize :)
