The classic 16 patch quilt block, the Checkerboard quilt block, is no brainer! It is the easiest quilt block out there, and I love using it even with my tiny 1.5 inch strips! Make this quilt in one weekend!
Cutting Instructions for the Checkerboard quilt block
You can make the Checkerboard quilt block using almost every final block size. Just use the following calculations: A = Finished Block Size + 0.5 inches B = (A x 2) + 0.5 inches A x B = Wanted measurement of strips
In the following table you can find the measurements for some common block sizes. Always remember FINISHED SIZE means the size it will be in a completed quilt. The measurements given already have the ¼ inch allowance included.

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!
Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.
