I've made a few blocks for the cheddar sampler as part of my goal this month. They are a bit fiddley, but I am enjoying them. I have found that most of the blocks have either 1 1/2 inch unfinished pieces or 2 1/2 inch unfinished pieces. So I just cut the cheddar into several strips in those sizes. I already had shirt strips in those sizes, so it has made the process really easy. I just grab a shirt strip and a cheddar strip and use the essential triangle tool to cut what I need.
The cheddar is a riley blake solid and I really like the fabric just as well as Kona.
