Chinese Checkers Quilt

Inspiration for this quilt came from a hand-pieced quilt, called “Star in a Circle”, made in Eastern Tennessee by an unknown maker, circa 1930. The six-pointed stars surrounded in red remind me of the Chinese Checkers game board I played with as a young child.

My version, made from thrift-store shirts, has only four blocks, scrappy sashing and borders, and a backing that is pieced from thrift-store shirts as well.

Size: 68″ x 68″ / 100% cotton fabric from thrift-store shirts / Six-pointed star block / Mustachio quilting design
