Here is another fast and easy quilt pattern called Checkmate that you’ll want to make!
The finished quilt size is 66 x 84
I did a large stipple design free motion quilting on my vintage 15-91 Singer using Aurifil thread.

One of my favorite designers is Joanna Figueroa from Fig Tree Quilts and I used her new Farm House line of fabrics from Moda for my Checkmate quilt.
This collection has several black fabrics in it and I chose to use the black fabric with cherries all over it for my border.
It is always fun to take photos of my quilts along the Mississippi river in front of our house.
I always enjoy working with Photoshop and decided to desaturate my Checkmate quilt so I could see what it would look like if I had just used black and white fabrics. I think it looks pretty good!
