I is for the Irish Chain block pattern

To obtain this overall pattern in a quilt, you need two blocks:
1. alternating blue and white squares
2. a large plain white block with small blue squares pieced into each corner.

This website explains it clearly and gives instructions:

I love anything and everything Irish. This is a very handsome block.
