471  Tic-Tac-Toe Anyone? in Quilting: Completed Projects by Homerof2 on: March 27, 2007 11:36:17 AM
Here's the story behind this game quilt:

I'd been trying and trying to find something to make for this challenge since it was announced but had little success.  I went through all the games in our house (which are many) seeing if I could make something work and finally I decided I couldn't so I wouldn't enter.  But, I've seen that up until a few days ago there weren't any entries and that bothered me but still I could think of nothing.  Well, last night I was working on another quilt project and after I laid it all out, I gave it a good look over and wondered if there was any way to make it my entry.  I thought maybe, if I really stretched my imagination, it could be a tic-tac-toe board and then a light bulb went off in my head  Shocked  Why not make one!

So, I laid in bed last night figuring it out and before falling asleep I had a plan.  I woke early and decided I better get my pattern down on paper:

                                               

As you can see, it took me all of 3 minutes to do that!


Then I started working on the project:

                                         


and what I thought was going to be very easy, turned a little tricky as I tried to line up all the intersections to be an exact match:

                                    


But, after some tearing out and re-sewing, I finally matched things up to my satisfaction and in a few hours, I had a brand new tic-tac-toe board:

                                    


Just to prove it is actually a 'real' quilt, here's a picture of the back, showing the quilting I did:

                            


However, you can't play without playing pieces so that meant a trip to the craft store to purchase some fun foam.  I wasn't up to making the traditional X's and O's this morning, so I made different colored squares.  My son and I played the inaugural game:

                                             


which went to the cat (don't know why it's called that but I remember when I was a kid and we played this game, we kpet three scores, one for each player and the ties went to the cat.)  However, I (the purple squares) won the second game!

                                  

And thus ends the story of the creation of my Tic-Tac-Toe Board  Grin

I received 2 packages today.

The first was from Dulcinea and she sent 2 Hardy Boy books for my son's collection.  THANKS!!!!  By mutual agreement, I'm not going to post pictures since they are just books!

And, from raynbow, I received this wonderful box of yarn, that was stuffed full (there's a bottom layer you can't see)!

yeah, i'm posting one of those wimpy posts to say that i got the most AWESOME log cabin pillow case from Homerof2 but i can't post pics because i'm living between mine and my mom's house and am now separated from my camera.

I feel like there should be Lone Ranger music playing in the background as I say - I'll come to your rescue and post pictures for you  Shocked

This was one of the most enjoyable projects I've made during my time with Craftster and one of the hardest to part with!

But, without further delay, here are pictures of the pillow cover I sent:

One side, a traditional log cabin, like she wanted:

                                 

and, the other side, a non-traditional log cabin design that I liked - it's called Diamond in the Cabin

                                  


Just in case anyone is interested - the dimensions are 18"x18" and there is a zipper in one side so you can insert the pillow (I just sent the case).

I received some beautiful stitch markers from Samsara today.  She also included some yarn but it's not in the picture.

                      

Sorry for the picture quality - they are much better in real life  Grin

I received a fantastic crochet hook holder from Dulcinea today.  The material couldn't suit me better and it holds over 40 hooks!!  Just a few more and I can have it full  Grin

Here's a picture of it closed:

                             

and open - it's made like a book with pages that you flip and on the inside front cover, there is a zippered pocket.
