Farmer's Wife Friday - Checkerboard Block 19

Some of the blocks that are coming up have so many small pieces.  I don't know how everyone does these type quilts with such small sizes.  They are a stretch for me.  Maybe that's why I'm only completing one per week.  This week, I decided to skip a few numbered blocks and do block 19 - Checkerboard.  Then I saw all those triangles to be cut for the outside.  I said, no way.  I'd rather use up a little extra fabric.  This was a great block for my scraps which I usually never save.  However, with all the block's small pieces, they came in handy.  Here's the layout of my cheater block - all squares and then after trimming.

Thanks for stopping by!
