Quilt in progress - giving in to more checkerboard blocks!
After trying to stick with the idea of only using one Honey Bun roll (forty 1 1/2in wide strips cut across the fabric) to make the sixteen patch checkerboards for the quilt I wrote about yesterday, I decided I liked the look of them too much to skimp on using them on the outer sections of the quilt. So I am part of the way through making another twenty four, using thirty two strips cut across thin eighths - this time the fabrics at Collections for a Cause "Hope", which coordinates well with the strips I used for the first sixty two blocks. I've taken out the mainly red prints from the selection, and added more mid indigo blues.
