Roll up Checkerboard

By: Jake Finch for C&T Publishing

Make your own roll-up checkerboard and checkers to take and play anywhere. Pouch to carry the checkers is also included. This project is an excerpt from C&T Publishing's Comfort Quilts from the Heart by Jake Finch. Learn how to make the full Checkerboard Quilt here.

Roll up Checkerboard


  • 1⁄2 yard white fabric for game board
  • 1⁄2 yard black fabric for game board
  • 31⁄3 yards for backing
  • 5⁄8 yard for binding
  • Batting: 56˝ × 68˝
  • 1⁄3 yard each of light and dark prints for checkers
  • 1⁄3 yard each of 2 prints for checker pouch
  • 1 yard narrow ribbon for pouch drawstring
  • 1⁄2 yard regular-weight fast2fuse interfacing for checkers


  1. Follow the directions for making the game board here. Add the first border.
  2. Spray baste the game board to a piece of batting 1˝ larger all around and quilt as desired.
  3. Cut a 7⁄8-yard piece of fast2fuse to the size of the batting. Fuse a piece of coordinating fabric to the back of the fast2fuse.
  4. Using your rotary ruler, mark lines every 2˝ on the wrong side of the fast2fuse and sew along each line. These lines will help the fast2fuse “roll” better.
  5. Spray baste the quilted game board to the wrong side of the fast2fuse and press together well.
  6. Trim the edges to the outline of the game board using a rotary ruler and rotary cutter. Then, using the cap from the can of spray baste as a template, mark and trim each corner of the game board.
  7. Cut 2 pieces of ribbon 24˝ long and slip the ends between the fast2fuse and the quilted game board. Press in place.
  8. Using a topstitch needle and a complementary color of rayon thread in both the top and the bobbin, carefully edgestitch around the perimeter of the game board. Be careful not to sew the ends of the ribbon together.
