The Parcheesi quilt pattern is a classic design that features a repeating block pattern reminiscent of the popular board game.
Why is it popular?
Firstly, its repeating block design is visually appealing and creates a pleasing checkerboard effect. The alternating colors also add interest and depth to the quilt.
Secondly, the pattern is relatively simple and straightforward to sew, making it accessible to quilters of different skill levels. The use of squares for the blocks means that there is less cutting and piecing involved, which can save time and effort.
Finally, the Parcheesi pattern has a nostalgic and playful feel to it, reminiscent of the classic board game of the same name. This can make it a fun and whimsical addition to a home, especially for families or individuals who enjoy games and playful design elements.
But I don’t know what Parcheesi is?
Parcheesi is a popular board game that originated in India, but has been played around the world under various names. The game is played on a board with a series of colored squares arranged in a cross shape. Each player has four tokens, which they move around the board based on the roll of dice.
The object of the game is to move all of your tokens from the starting point around the board and into the home position before your opponents do.
Parcheesi is a classic family game that has been enjoyed for generations, and has been adapted into many different versions and variations over the years.
Why this pattern?
In this pattern, the board game style reminiscent of the classic is achieved with the addition of floral patterns.
