checker board quilt number 2

Here's quilt number two from Christmas.  I haven't shown number one yet, but this one had pictures ready to go.  I made my sister this little bitty quilt.  It's a checkerboard game for her classroom.  There's a lot of winter indoor recess in northern Indiana.

My dad helped me cut out the little wooden disc for the checkers.  I painted them up to match. 


I  picked up this fabric in July, but hadn't decided what to do with it.  I was saving it for the right project.



The back fabric is yellow from Bee's curtains in her nursery.  I've been saving it too. I save too much.  I think it's genetic.

I linked up to some of these fine parties:

LOVE this! So beautifully made, as are all your creations. Well done! This reminded me that I've seen smaller versions of these used in Montessori classroom as a part of a math learning game.

Yes, we all know why you save things but the nice part is you do find a use for everything. My saved things just gather dust and take up space.

I love this idea! The fabric is adorable, and I love the game pieces. I'm a saver, too. It kills me to cut into a beautiful piece of fabric:)

What a great idea. You found such cute fabrics, I like you matched the bee on the checkers to the fabric.
