Checkerboard Quilt - Fun, Quick, and Easy!

Here is an idea for a quilt that is both functional and fun.  This twin bed size quilt is also a giant checkerboard!
We purchased enough extra fabric to make checker pillows that stuff into a carry bag so that the checkers-in-the-bag double as a pillow.  A busy and fun design was chosen for the backing fabric, and a bright yellow solid for the binding.  It’s a simple design that was done – start to finish – in just one day. 
Total materials cost was less about 70 dollars, time to quilt it on the long-arm quilting machine was less than 2 hours, including set-up and loading.

  1. What a fun idea! I love the checkers-in-a-bag pillow idea, too.
