Block 12: checker board
There are so many great sew-a-long's going at the moment, and it's great way to join others as you work your way through a quilt, or just a few blocks. There are some great techniques to be learnt in the Splendid Sampler, which really appeals to me.
The block pictured above is Block 12: Checker Board. I used some Once Worn fabrics for this block and also did another block (below) using Paperie by Amy Sinibaldi for Art Gallery Fabrics (available in our shop). I've wanted for so long to say "I just used a few scraps of Paperie I had lying around to whip up this block". And now I can with this gorgeous little Checker Board block!

Farmer's Wife 1930's Quilt-A-Long by Kerry at Very Kerry Berry. I'm doing this quilt-a-long and I'm waaaay behind. But that's ok, at least I'll have a wealth of information available when I come to complete my various blocks. These tutorials are great!!
