Jennifer S – 5 pairs of Liberated Checkerboard Blocks
(The ones that look black are actually a dark purple.)
Like LPB, I was a little iffy on this month’s pattern, but I gave it a whirl, and now I’m really in love with this block! My first two aren’t shown above, since upon reflection, the color fabric was a little too “patterned”. Oh shucks, I’ll just have to keep them. 😉
I made most of them in a similar way to Sara’s, but I did it more of a classic “stack & slash” method, so, cut, swap, sew, cut, swap, sew, etc. I made one pair using Sophie’s method, but I started with layered scraps, since I didn’t have another 10″ square of my white background fabric. Either way, they were really quite easy, so if I don’t win, I think I’ll definitely make up some more for myself.
Loving this group! Jennifer / Funky’s Mama
