Double Irish Chain Quilt - Strips All Sliced

A quick update on today's progress ... I've sewn and sliced all the strips for my Double Irish Chain quilt - what would I do without June Tailor's Shape Cut Plus Ruler? If you haven't seen one in use then check out a tutorial I posted previously showing how to use it to cut charm squares - and you can cut all your strips out with it too:

Tutorial: Charm Squares - An Easy Way To Cut Multiples Quickly


I'm thinking there's a lot of work involved now though in lining up all these seams perfectly to create the blocks!  Best if I leave that for another day :)
