Modern Pearls Quilt Along - Week Three

Irish Chain Quilt
Good Morning! I can't believe it's Thursday, and I'm just now getting our weekly Quilt-Along info up.  Thank you for being patient with me!  Every day this past week has been filled to the brim from morning till night around here, with prepping to move, prepping our new garden area, finishing up school, and working baby pigs.

You all are superstars - so many of you have jumped way ahead, and I've even seen a few finishes!  I love it when you post photos of your quilts - it makes me so happy to see your creativity and enthusiasm for this fun pattern.

Here's where we're at with our Modern Pearls Quilt Along schedule:
Week 2 (last week) = cut out your quilt, and get your strip piecing sewn.
Week 3 (this week) = sub-cutting your strip pieces, and sew your 9-patches.
Week 4 (4/13) = sew together your quilt top (rows and borders)!

I've posted a little video in my Instagram stories of how I speed up the process of sub-cutting my strips, which you may find helpful.  (I'll save it to the quilt-along highlights as well, so you can find it there.)  This is already such a fast quilt, but any time-saving tricks make it even better!

If you want to find previous posts for the quilt along, I'll link them below.
