AVFKW X Making Magazine - The Checkerboard Quilt Kit


The Checkerboard Quilt Kit by Kristine Vejar, co-owner of AVFKW // featuring naturally-dyed fabric and thread

Kristine has contributed a study in natural dyeing to Making No. 12 / Dusk. A simple template to create your first quilt or a springboard for artistry and experimentation, the Checkerboard Quilt is both a home furnishing and social accessory, engaging the maker in natural color palettes and the users in a wonderful take-along piece of art.

We have the Checkerboard Quilt as a kit. Make your own version and see the beauty of naturally dyed fabrics take shape - from lavenders to magentas to deep purples - with squares and stitches alike.

We have created kits using the same materials Kristine used in her project! The Checkerboard Quilt Kit includes all of the naturally dyed and undyed fabric you will need to complete the project, along with naturally dyed sashiko thread and sashiko needles. Play with the aesthetic quality of contrast and saturation on a dynamic, geometric pattern that has been used for generations.
