Chess in Spring

Last night I had an idea for a quilt, and I thought I would share.

I have yet to block out how much fabric I would need and instructions, but what do you think? Should I take this idea one step further and do a pattern?

You could also use large chess pieces appliqued onto it rather than flowers. Not sure why I went for flowers....

Once I finish Tori's Technicolour Granny blanket (nearly there) and also our Zig Zag blanket, then I can start to do some serious quilting!

Quilt is great, and you could applique anything on it, make kids versions, girls/boys, adults, teenagers, possibilities are endless.

what did you use to create the image? Is it a special program?
