In a favorite Christmas storybook, a tiny Christmas elf dips his brush into a can of checkered paint as he works on a chessboard. Checkered paint! How magical is that? One quick brush stroke and the work is done!
In today’s new tutorial you’ll learn how to make the gorgeously intricate Checkered Dresden quilt, and it’s so simple, it’s almost as easy as a swipe of checkered paint!

There’s nothing as quaint as a small town. (Of course, as small town folks ourselves, we may be a tad bit biased!) I’m talking about the kind of place where you can step off your front porch and follow the sidewalk to the library, the park, or the corner bakery. It’s the kind of place where kids can ride their bikes all the way across town and the neighbors are friendly and familiar.
Today’s new tutorial, The Crosswalk Quilt, was inspired by a beautiful line of fabric called Neighborhood. It’s simple and sweet, but intricate and eye-catching all at once.

This quilt features the brand new fabric line created by Mary herself, called Small Wonders for Springs Creative and it is filled with what Mary calls “irresistible small scale prints” perfect for patchwork. If you love a print, you don’t have to worry about cutting your favorite design in half or not seeing the complete print when you cut your fabric to piece together into a quilt! It has a beautifully vintage flare and it’s just so cute!
This quilt is a slight variation of the 54-40 or Fight Quilt. Watch in the tutorial how you can flip a few squares and get the original. We can’t wait to see what you make with this pattern! Make sure to share on social media using #andesquilt!
Here are a few quotes from Mary Fons that we love:
“When life as you know it is torn into a zillion pieces, it just makes sense to tear up fabric into a zillion pieces and then sew it back together again into organized blocks with a nice French-fold binding.” (Source)
“Once the quilt bug bit me, obsession set in.” (Source)
