Block 7 “Game Board
The fabric for the first block is from Love Note. I really enjoyed making this block – the strip piecing technique is really helpful in making the center checkerboard design.
The second set is in Flower Pot fabric. All of these blocks are in the 4.5″ finished size. The only downside to the strip-piecing method for the checkerboard center is manifest here – unidirectional prints aren’t going to stay that way. I knew that going in but wanted a near-solid print so I’m not fretting over this detail. But if that sort of thing bothers you, bear that in mind when choosing your fabrics.
