Liberated Checkerboards



This month's block lotto features a liberated checkerboard block, a bit similar to the tic-tac-toe blocks we made a while back, but more cuts across initially, and no inserted strips. I've made 5 pairs of blocks in the lotto colourway, but am also working on some more in other fabric as a scrap-busting (or in this case, small-piece-of-fabric-busting) project. I hope to show those tomorrow...

I also finally finished the tote bags, which I will wait until Friday to show, just in case any of the recipients are lurking out there in blogland/Facebook...

These blocks are really different, each piece within the block are not uniform in shape or size. Cute and eye catching.
