Irish chain is growing

When I was preparing the blocks for my mother's quilt I realised that I do not like the setup of the picnic size quilt - not symmetric enough for me. I checked the others and the best was the queen, so I restarted cutting. Instead of 128 I was fighting with 160 blocks! But the are almost ready for the next round, sitting nicely next to each other. I found a good method for speeding up chain pieced piece cutting: let them fall to the floor! Actually I am holding the chain with one hand, and cutting with the other, but when I made the photo I realised I do not have a third to take a pic, so I simply imitated. But it is really tough to make a photo with left hand, so even this was a challenge :)
