Hi my loves! We hope to find you all well, eager and eager to learn. We’ve separated some really amazing patterns to share with you this week. It doesn’t matter if you do it to sell, for yourself or as a gift to loved ones, we are always looking to create new things. The Quilted Checkerboard is the pattern that we are going to learn today, will you come with us?
This pattern is very beautiful, simple and easy to make. In addition to being interactive, a game that you can teach and play with the little ones. To make this pattern you will need few materials. It’s a small pattern and you can use fabric scraps to make the pieces or the details of the board. Choose colors that contrast with each other, that show each square of the board well.
This difference must be visible so that children and everyone can learn to play. Whether in the backyard, in the living room, in the bedroom, on the sofa or snuggled in bed, it’s a great opportunity to spend quality time with people we love. How about scheduling an afternoon of play with the little ones? Make several rounds, play with each other and have a good laugh.
To make the quilted checkerboard you don’t need very different materials. If this isn’t your first quilting project, you must have it all out there. We leave here below the list of materials that the designer separated for us.
Quilted Checkerboard Materials
- Two contrasting fabrics – a fat quarter of each is plenty, or use scraps in two different color families to mix it up!
- Fabric for binding & ties – 1/4″ yard (If you don’t want to make your own ties, you can use ribbon);
- Backing fabric (must be at least 24″ x 24″);
- Two different colored pieces of felt for the markers;
- Basting pins or spray baste;
- Simple sewing machine;
- Cutting mat;
- Rotary cutter;
- Straight pins;
- Iron & ironing board or pressing mat;
The complete pattern is available at Suzy Quilts, with the step by step and all the cutting and sewing tips and information. There are also photos that will guide you through the entire project, so you can check if everything is ok. We think this project idea is brilliant, what do you guys think?
