Scrappy Project Planner Checkerboard Quilt

Today I am sharing a couple table runners that I made using the Checkerboard quilt pattern in the Scrappy Project Planner by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet.  I am participating in the Fat Quarter Shop blog tour using the Scrappy Project Planner that I received several months ago from Fat Quarter Shop. You can read my post to learn more about the Scrappy Project Planner.Scrappy Project Planner Checkerboard QuiltThis was a perfect project to use some of my batik scraps. Whenever I finish a quilt project I cut up all the scraps so they are ready to use for scrap projects. Some of the pieces I save as strips which was handy for this project.

It took no time at all to make one block…….and then another! I couldn’t decide if I wanted to make something with brights or browns.

You can never have too many can you!Scrappy Checkerboard runnersWe have had some nice weather so it was fun to take my table runners outside. Scrappy Project Planner Checkerboard Quilt

    How do you get the pattern??? Do you have to buy the book? Can you purchase just the pattern…what a great way to use up scraps.

    1. Hi Margaret, the pattern is in the book. I don’t think there is a way to buy it alone, sorry.

    These are really cute. I love this planner, and all of the inspiration within

  3. Very nice. The neutrals are so pretty and the brights are such fun.

  4. I really like that block Connie.

    1. Me too Vicki, it is a neat one and great for scraps!

  5. Amazing how you begin with small scraps and then by sewing them together you have a larger block. The Table Runners are beautiful.

    1. Isn’t it neat! I doubt if I’ll ever be able to use all my scraps!

  6. these are great and totally different feel between them, one is fun and playful the other is very modern and fancy in a way.

    1. Thanks Bea, it is so much fun to use of scraps…..especially batiks right!

  7. So pretty! Great use of “trial” blocks! Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thanks Patricia, it is always fun to actually use up the trial blocks!
