Chinese Checkers



I'm trying to finish this quilt. I have about 8 more seams to sew and add the pieces around the out side to square it up. Then I might add a scrappy border yet.
Have to see how much fabric I have for the backing as to how big the front can be.
The pattern is suppose to remind you of a Chinese checkers game. I seen a similar quilt at a show and made up my own pattern from that.

You do such lovely precise work! Spent many a long summer afternoon as a kid playing Chinese Checkers with my sister!

Nice quilt... (After seeing the title, I can see it button tufted. Buttons being the marbles.)

so will you make some small yo-yo's to play with instead of marbles?

I wish I could come up with my own patterns like that! Good job on the running! My favorite part is how good it feels when the run is done! :)
