This block went together nicely. The hardest part was which fabric to use in the checkerboard. I wanted to use the gold fabric and the ovally print, but the gold doesn't have enough contrast with the background for my taste.
I live in Madison, Wisconsin and love to quilt. I'm a member of 2 local guilds: Mad City Quilt Guild and Mad Mod Quilt Guild. There's never enough free time to sew. Working gets in the way! Another hobby of mine is playing USTA tennis. I'm dreaming of winning the lottery, so I can play tennis and quilt all day, every day! =)
