That's so awesome!!  I would be soo tempted to make a matching set of letter tiles to go along with it!  How fantastic would it be to lay that out on the floor and play a giant game!  Great job!

that is awesome!
Along the lines of letter tiles, I think the you should make letter tile pillows of your initials (with matching scores) to go with it!

its very cute! I love how you made it look enough like the scrabble board to be recognized but not too much to take away the beauty of quilts Smiley
