Chess and checkers fans of all ages will love the beautiful quilts and game pieces you can make with this set! With two game board squares, you can either make a lap or bed size quilt. In the first game board square, four sections are pieced together with sashing in the hoop, so you only need to make 16 of them to complete a chess/checker board. With the second game board square, you will make 64, but don't worry, they are so quick and easy, you'll have them done in no time! All of the squares are pieced, appliquéd, and stippled in the hoop with batting, all you have to do is sew them together with sashing, throw on a back, and bind your new quilt.
There are three different types of game pieces in this set - all made in the hoop. You can make cute little discs or button covers for the smaller chess/checker quilt, or you can make mini pillows for the larger game quilt.
While you're at it, why not make a zippered pouch like the two shown in the pictures below to hold the game pieces, the instructions to make them are included in this set, along with instructions to make the blue, cream, and brown quilt that matches them.
There are so many ways to use the quilt squares in this set - take a look at all the quilt samples below for more ideas!
