Farmer’s wife: Checkerboard

In this block, Laurie used the same prints for the squares opposing each other, diagonally, vertically and horizontally. Only the centre square has no twin. But I was glad to have a block to show off as many different prints as possible, so I didn’t stick to her example. Postage Stamp is the only other block I remember so far where I could do this.

I love to look at a block and go over the prints in my mind, remembering where I bought this fabric, or borrowed that one, how long I’ve had this one, or that I am now run out of that one—or best—remember the quilt I bought especially this fabric for, or the dress out of which I cut that square.
