A well-worn wooden game board and an ancient plastic butter tub full of marbles are never far apart at my Grandma Sylvia's house. Growing up and now as an adult, Chinese Checkers is still the house favorite game pulling out the competitive nature in the whole family. Although whether it was 6 on 6 or 1 on 1 you have to watch out for Grandma. Grandma is a sneaky old girl who will give quick advice on advancing your marbles across the board until you realize she is actually setting herself up for the win! I have lost SOOO many games of checkers to her over the years, mostly still due to her advice, and will probably continue to do so as long as we can play.
So, it was no contest when my quilt guild announced a quilting challenge to make a quilt inspired by a board game that Chinese checkers would be my inspiration! Made of just two shapes and when all stitched together made a whopping 20"x 18.5" ring of wonder! Allowing you to fussy cut to your heart's content! So really WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT!
Oh! Other than this is a FREE pattern you can download once you sign up for my bi-weekly newsletter that will feature upcoming EPP quilt patterns, reviews, and behind-the-sign/sneak peeks of all things here at Sew This Happened!
Extra big pieces perfect for fussy cutting!
Like ALL the fussy cutting!
Simple assembly makes this a project you can easily complete in a day.
Then BOOM! Star Hceckers is complete and ready for a mini or add more completed Star Checkers more for a throw size!
Happy Tiny Stitching, Y'all!!!!
