Tricky Checkers


About this Quilt


Easy, scrappy strip pieced bed quilt patterns are pretty much the best thing you can find in your trick-or-treat haul! Dig deep into your scraps to get started on this delicious design from Jo and Kelli. The blocks around the perimeter of the quilt act as a border and frame the center blocks beautifully.

This pattern requires a lot of width of fabric strips in oranges, whites and blacks. If you want to use shorter strips, like 20˝ strips from fat quarters, you can double the number of required bands to get even more print variety.

This design works best when there are lots and lots of different prints, whether you stick to the Autumn/Halloween color story of the original quilt or choose your favorite palette. The color option in the pattern uses pastel flannels for a sweet, cuddly look, so there are plenty of tricks you can try to make this pattern your own!
