Here is the next step of the plaid - different strips stitched diagonally on top. They are bias-cut strips so that they can easily curve. I think it is starting to look like snakes and ladders. It's becoming obvious to me at this stage that I should have cut gentler curves when I was making the check background so that there was a more regular grid to follow.
This is the final step in my plaid - wider strips sewn over the grid. Because my thinner strips are irregular, not all the crossings show in the 'windows' between the red print strips. I quite like this, but it wasn't the point of the exercise. I have named this my tipsy plaid.
The third and final lesson of this Structured Fabric class is available tomorrow. It is about stripes, and after that I will put my check, plaid and striped pieces together to make a small quilt.
