Wow Clogging with the Irish

I had envisioned my modified Irish chain in the traditional setting but the pace quickened in the dance when I laid out the just sewn blocks in a closer knit pattern as I checked for obvious colour repeats.  oooh!

This is feeling like a very slow dance to me and frankly boring.  :O

This makes my pulse race and sets my feet a tapping.  :)  Not being able to quickly get this all sewn together is having its benefits. ;~)  I think I will recut those alternate plain blocks and pick up the rhythm of this dance.  My partner is up for the switch in pace. 

Happy St. Patrick's Day to my fellow Needle and Threaders.  hmm, sounds like a dance club to me!

I think I like the fast pace better, too! More like the "quick step".

Yup, I like the quick step better too!

Both versions look very nice to me, I am curious to see the finished quilt.

Yep, I'm with you a quick step, two step is maybe more inspiring, but you know the quilt might just need a rest?

I'm also enjoying the quick step. It seems more "Irish" and joyful, at least, to me.
