|Block 41 - Checkboard|
This week’s block is one of those blocks that looks more complicated than it is especially as it can be created using my slice-and-dice method.
You start off with two strips cut from two fabrics (total four fabric strips).
|Start with four strips from two fabrics|
Stitch them together along the long edge to create a single patch.
From this patch you cut four strips.
Tip: Do not press at this stage as this will give you wiggle room when matching the strips in the final step.
|Trim one end and cut your strips from there..|
Turn two of the strips upside down.
|By not pressing you will have wiggle room for seam matching|
Stitch the strips together to create a Checkerboard block.

I look forward to seeing your blocks – just tag #block41checkerboard or #thepatchsmith on Instagram. Alternatively post a photo to the Flickr group.
Until next week .....
