Wandering around at a fabric sale a while back I found some cute red-letter fabric and decided to make a Scrabble inspired quilt.
I started out by sketching out the grid and piecing together each 5x5 block. I embroidered a little star in the center square. The squares are 3"x3"
I wanted it to be a playable game/quilt so I cut out 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" felt squares and used iron on letters. Word to the wise - synthetic felt melts, so I had to use a warm iron and a sheet of newspaper over the letters to avoid melting/sticking.
The packs of iron on letters don't really match the letter distribution in the game, so I just make sure I had duplicates of the vowels and some common letters.
Then I made a little bag to hold the letters.
Here's the finished quilt - finished size was about 60"x60":
And the back:
It was, as you might guess, a birthday present for a friend, but I kinda want to make one for me now!!
