The term “checked” in the 18th century referred to any number of woven or printed patterns that intersected at right angles. Checked linens were used for a variety of purposes including aprons, shirts, children’s clothing, trousers, and linings, as well as many household items such as toweling, bed hangings, and chair coverings.
