Checks Mix Quilts

Easy strip piecing technique produces
delightful designs.
• Choose from classic designs or patterns with
seasonal flair.
• Buffalo check/buffalo plaid continues as a
hot trend across multiple decor styles including
cottage, farmhouse, and traditional.
From dainty ginghams to supersized buffalo checks, the classic
check motif is everywhere you look. Now, you can look no further
than your own home as you include patchwork checks in your
quilts! Fabric and quilt designer Corey Yoder shows you just how
fun and easy it is to incorporate this versatile element into quilts.
Start with basic strip piecing—sewing your own checks is as easy
as making Nine Patches! Then use the versatile checks as block
centers, let them make a statement on their own, or join them into
a pieced border. No matter the season, with eight generous-sized
lap quilt patterns, you’re sure to find a pattern that’s a perfect
accent for your home, whether your style is modern or farmhouse,
cottage or traditional.
