Set Classic Blocks with Rich Fabrics for a Quilt to Treasure!

Nine-patch blocks set on point within squares create a timeless quilt you’ll treasure for many years to come. A beautiful blue toile sets off the blocks beautifully.

Make each block different to add interest to the quilt. Your stash may already contain enough light and dark fabrics for the 9-patches.

Checkerboard Squares Quilt

Rich blues give this quilt a classic appeal. Another predominant color will be just as lovely. Choose muted hues for a traditional look. Or go more vivid to give the quilt a modern vibe. This pattern can be interpreted so many ways.

The finished quilt, inspired by a design by Sandy Bonsib, is 79 3/4″ x 92 1/2″.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
