Let the Games Begin: A Game Board Quilt

Whether you’ve got a sick friend to entertain, or it’s just a rainy, stay-inside sort of day, this cheerful checker pattern Game Board quilt can’t help but brighten spirits. It communicates love and caring, and of course spells fun.

This free project download includes the supply list and instructions for the above classic checkerboard quilt and the checker pieces and pouch below. We know that when someone’s sick, you may not have much time to spend making them a game board quilt gift, so the quick & easy roll-up variation project (pictured below) is also included!

Maybe checkers just isn’t your thing? We threw in some patterns for chess pieces as well!

This project is an excerpt from Comfort Quilts from the Heart by Jake Finch, which includes 12 quick projects to take care of others.
