For me, patterns and ideas for quilts come from just about anywhere I can find them. The pattern I used for my Check This! quilt was a picture of a quilt that was in my local fabric store’s weekly flyer. I had a lot of checkered fabrics and some homespun plaids that I wanted to use, and this pattern was well suited for them. Much of the fabric was from a bag of material I acquired from someone’s kind, free posting on craigslist.
I donated Check This! to the County of Ventura, Children & Family Services, in December 2013.
