Checked Patterns

These classic checkerboard patterns alternate squares of two colors.

Gingham Patterns

Gingham is traditionally a mix of a bold color — often red — and white, in a checkerboard pattern. These gingham patterns include traditional gingham patterns and some untraditional gingham patterns in alternate colors.

Block Patterns

Colorful blocks — of three, four, or more different colors — are arranged together. Some of the blocks are striped, and they may have a border around them.

Textured Patterns

Solid-color patterns with multiple textures create a checkerboard pattern from the contrast.
