“Half Checkerboard” is a patchwork block made using your embroidery machine. It uses appliqué and flip-and-sew methods to create the block.
What can I do with the “Half Checkerboard” block?
The entire 52 blocks series was created to make a sampler quilt over the year. You can also use them for other projects like bags, motifs on clothing, and home decor items like oven hot pads, table cloths, and table runners.
To make a tote bag you could use four on each main panel, and two on the side panels to create a beautiful tote bag.
Instructions and sizes
It is only available for the 5×7″ hoop, the final block measures 5×5″. Not all the designs in this series will work well as a larger size, so for consistency and to maintain the dainty aspect of some of the blocks in the series, I’m keeping it to 5×5″.
All the available stitch files are provided in a single download. Remember that Bernina machines will read the EXP file type when you load it directly onto the USB stick or machine.
A video with titles showing you how to make this block is provided in your purchase note when you’ve ordered.
