    Checkers in the Park quilt(free Pattern)

    I made this quilt from a free tutorial. It was quick, easy, and fun. Wouldn't it make a great quilt for kids Christmas present? All you would need to do is make some small bean bags or anything for checker pieces. I can see one made for a little boy using little toy cars for the pieces, or legos. And a little girl with teacup playing pieces. The possibilities are endless. You can find the tutorial here

    I love this quilt and your ideas for "checkers". How about stuffed yo yo's for checkers?

    Love this pattern. Would be great with a baby quilt pattern also. Love the idea of the checkers. Love your back fabric also.
