Camping Checkers quilt finish for Mother's Day!

Set up your game - the attached zippered pouch makes this a breeze!

My DS and I couldn't wait for a camping trip to play our on our new camping checkers quilt - guess who won?!?


Later in the day, my DH started a fire for s'mores in the chimnea and we enjoyed 
games of checkers and yummy dessert together!

The Camping Checkers AccuQuilt was created from 
32 white 2" scrappy squares
32 dark blue 2" scrappy squares

Four 2 1/4" x 8" red strips for inside border

Eight 3.5" various scrappy squares for second border

Four 4" white scrappy strips for largest outside border, cut to fit for square corners

2.25" wof scrappy strips cut to fit for binding

back:  scrappy strips of denim sewn together to fit

A scrappy binding with attached, zippered bag for checkers picture tutorial:

Recycled zippered pencil bag from 2nd grade

Great grandma Block's buttons - a set of brown and a set of white

Pinch and then snip to mark

Draw a line diagonally from where you snipped

Sew with right sides together (this scrappyquilt has a scrappy binding, too)

Sew along the edge to finish.

(Scrappy jeans backing, too!)

Two buttons in one space for the king.

This will be great for Mother's Day!

This Mom needs to brush up on her strategic moves :-)

Have fun and happy sewing,
