It's round 4 of Quilting Gail's Stay at Home Round Robin quiltalong, and this week's choice is 'checkerboard'.
I'll admit, I wasn't overly wild about the prospect of making 1" squares for a checkerboard, but realized it's what the quilt needed. The other three rounds are busy - it was time to give this quilt a round of rest!
For the checkerboard, I pulled out red again from the center and piano key round. But what to pair it with? There was already enough blue and green, and I certainly didn't want to go down the bright yellow path again.
Instead, I went with an orange that leans toward red for a perfect pairing.
