colorfully speckled pattern
Explanation:
gescheckt means pied, piebald, dappled. Piebald is used mainly in reference to horses (spotted or patched). Pied means patchy or splotched.

I suggest a creative translation such as: colorfully speckled pattern

color checked pattern


Explanation:
I believe in the context it is presented the intend is to convey that the colors have been coordinated to present a certain pattern. Or, if they are referring to PLAID, than of course color plaided... It is hard to tell by this one sentence.

Good Luck!
