As an avid quilter, you’ve probably seen many one-patch quilts. But isn’t this modern interpretation different? Designer Sheri Cifaldi-Morrill was inspired to create it by the many car enthusiasts in her life.  Have you ever seen a checkerboard pattern on the side of a performance racecar? Noticed the graphic appeal of a flag at the finish line? Sheri’s modern design reinterprets the iconic symbol of car racing using a gradient color palette of Kona solids.

This is a quilt any racing family would love: it is visually stunning and quick to the finish.
