Random notes from a former confirmed spinster who still lives with cats. Some things never change. Oh, and I quilt, hike, and bake on occasion.

Spinster Quilt -Games and Butter
No matter what you use as fabric for the Checkerboard block, it is going to end up looking like a checkerboard. However, I loved this Amy Butler fabric because I think it looks a little like game pieces. I can't really remember pieces to what game. The bottom of the game pieces to Sorry? Something backgammony? (Yes, it's a word. Backgammony: something resembling the game of Backgammon.) By the way, I do not know how to play Backgammon; I'm assuming that it is an actual game because spell check has not told me otherwise.
I can't think of making the Churn Dash block without making it look like butter. Although after buying butter from a local dairy and forgetting about it in the back of my refrigerator, I do know that I could have made this block green.
