Game Quilt

When you combine a quilt and a game, you get a Game Quilt. This quilt was made for my six year old cousin in Florida.  Florida doesn’t really have the climate to utilize quilts, but at least the game can used year round.

My original inspiration was AnneMarie’s Twister Inspired Quilt from the Gen X Quilters Blog.  I made one last year by truly appliqueing each circle {Link}.  For this quilt, I used raw edge quilting, where the edges will fray for a distressed look after washing.  I still used 12.5 inch squares — which was easy to cut with my 12.5 inch square ruler.  Rather than using my typical meandering stipple, I quilted on the diagonal of each block with a walking foot.

We just came back from vacation.  See the nice pool in the picture?  This is where Little Jimmy (and Dunder Dog too) enjoyed some fun swim time!  No quilting was accomplished over the past week; however, I have the next two days with some major sewing plans.
