Pattern Details

CheckMate! (formerly known as Christmas in July...or not?) is a very versatile pattern. I love applique and chose to use an Anni Downs fabric line called '12 Days of Christmas'. If you don't like to can simply fussy cut some adorable fabrics and eliminate the appliqued circles all together. See the photo of my Little Red Riding Hood quilt. Too cute! This pattern comes in a small wall hanging size or a nice size lap quilt. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY basic quilting skills. Applique can be done by hand or machine. One can also eliminate the appliqued circles and substitute for a super cute fussy cut fabric SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Pattern includes requirements and instruction for both a wall hanging measuring 40" x 40" and lap size quilt measuring 64" x 76

Welcome to my Pattern Store! Browse through my'll find many freebie pdf downloads that will encourage stronger quilting skills and helpful tips! A bit about me.... The year 2010 is when i truly started to focus on quilting as something more than just a hobby. Having been a stay at home mom for 20 years, my world changed the minute my boys graduated from high school. I knew i had to fill my time with something! And why not with something i loved? Best part~~ my husband is my biggest cheerleader! I spent hours of practice and many classes learning how to machine quilt. Today I own a computerized Innova longarm and do machine quilting for myself and others. Visit my website to see examples of my work. :) Contact me if you'd like me to quilt for you! I began designing quilt patterns in 2013. In 2014 I started offering 12 pdf class downloads to make the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt using modern rotary cutting and piecing methods. If you own the Farmer's Wife Sampler book...scroll through my patterns and find the full description listed in Class One! Learn! Share! Quilt! Thanks for stopping by! ~karen
