The Checkerboard Quilt Block is similar in construction to the Right and Left Quilt Block, the primary difference being that the Checkerboard Quilt Block has a 4-patch in the center instead of a single square.
Skill Level: Intermediate
When drafting the block, it's important to note that it's actually a 4-patch. It's entirely possible to construct the block similar to a Big Dipper Quilt Block, using Quarter Square Triangles. However, using a central 4-patch saves you a few seams.
