Another Checkerboard Block


I completed the "Autumn Joy" block today.  This is the 10th of 13 blocks needed to finish the "Checkerboard Flowers" quilt.  I have two more in my possession.  The 13th block is larger than the rest and goes in the middle of the quilt like a panel.  Each block takes approximately a full day or two to finish, and so the last of these will probably take a little longer.  I'll still need to make some more of the checkerboard strips when the blocks are stitched together.

I'm happy with my progress on this quilt.  I have several projects in which I'm coming down to the wire.  It's hard to envision my sewing life once these block of the month quilts are all complete!

I've never made a multicolored checkerboard - only 2 colors, strip pieced. Yours looks terrific!

I think this quilt should go on your guest bed so when all your blog friends visit they can use it LOL!

Beautiful block Barbara! Love the colors.

I usually pretty much jump into a new BOM once I finish an older one.
