Checkered Mix SCC 135 (Mailed)



Add to Wishlist


This quilt uses a Layer Cake (a collection of 10″ squares) and yardage in two complementary colors. The pattern is easy enough for beginning quilters. Most of the units are squares, and there are no half-square triangles in this one. 

Skill Level: Beginner

Fabric Requirements:

  • One Layer Cake (at least 40 pieces; 10″ squares) or equivalent in scraps
  • Yardage 1: 2-5/8 yard; this fabric will be used in the blocks and should coordinate well with the Layer Cake. A solid, tone-on-tone, or small or medium print works best. Do not choose a large print.
  • Yardage 2: 3 yards. This is used for the border but also within the quilt. A large print might work, but I’d recommend a solid, tone-on-tone, or small or medium print. Note: The yardage should not be a fabric contained in the Layer Cake. It should be something that coordinates with the fabrics in the Layer Cake.
  • 7-1/4 yards backing fabric
  • 3/4 yard binding fabric

There are no special rulers or other tools required
