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.
