hanging chads

Just back from my quilter, Suzette Fisher. The block is scaled down from one Judy Laquidara posted on her Patchwork Times blog.

Made from deconstructed shirt parts.
My blocks finish 4 inches square.
Darks, two 2 1/2 inch squares and two 1 1/2 by 2 1/2 inch rectangles.
Lights, two 1 1/2 inch by 2 1/2 inch rectangles. Named for the effect of the notorious ballots.

I absolutely LOVE your hanging chads Lynn! It's one of my many UFO's and grows very slowly given the small pieces. I loved it the first time you posted about it, and had to begin one right away, LOL, par for the course! And naturally, I'm doing Bonnie's spools also. Great posts! Hugs, Finn
