Checkerboard Quilt

The checkerboard center of this quilt was pieced several years ago.  I ran out of the red fabric which was originally a summer garment.  I recently laid it against several blue fabrics in my stash and though this stripped one worked as a border with more white as a second border.  The quilt is machine pieced and quilted.  It measures 35 in square.

Here is a close up to show the fabrics better.

The back is white.  The quilting is difficult to see, but the center is a simple cross-hatch.  The blue strip has simple rope.  The outer white area has leaves, tulips, and lilies.
