Plaid-tastic begins...

Here is my selection of fabrics; I chose one multicolour batik to jazz it up. The batik will be replace the green squares from the original.

I cut one square out of it and I started my block, but then I realized that liberating it was going to be harder than I thought. My intincts were to make it even and straight...so I thought I would make my square less square, then everything to follow would automatically be wonky.



as I added rows things did get more wonky...but I made a conscious effort to match up seams...but not stressing about it, if it was not perfect.


my row would look like the strip above and then I would take my ruler and cut a straight line, but I could angle my line to make my strips more wedge-like...

Great movement.....almost an illusion of a curve because of the awesome contrast!
