Checker Hack

Checker Hack

Quilt #17.  This was a kit from Connecting Threads called "Instructions"  by Cheryl Arkison.  I can still find it on google by typing in 'instructions quilt cheryl arkison tag' even though it's no longer available on Connecting Threads, but at the time it cost about $35.00 on sale.  I didn't want a twin size so redid the pattern to a square throw, discarding the center design panel (which I just couldn't use because it was...not attractive) and using the cut-off yellow for the center instead, hence the name of my quilt: Checker HACK. It took one day in November 2018 to cut pieces and then I waited for our 2019 July quilters retreat to make it.  It took less than two days to sew it together. Great retreat project.   Finished size, 69"x69", batt is a washable wool/cotton blend and I found the perfect backing on sale at Calico Creations in Mt. Vernon, WA.   Quilting pattern is large meander by long-arm quilter Lyn at Camlyn Quilts in Smokey Point, WA.  Start to finish the project was 4 (non-sequential) days, including the binding which I sewed on September 20th, 2019. ...........
