Disclaimer: I'm not a quilter.

I found a tute for felting stones at Resurrection Fern and really wanted to make them but I can't just make things to be pretty (usually) so I decided to make a lot of them, dye them in Kool-Aid, and make a checker's board to go with them. For my niece. For Christmas. (mind you I thought of this in like May or June)

So I attempted a mini quilt a couple weeks ago for the checkers board! AH! Not great, but it serves it's purpose AND I don't even have to wrap it. Check it out:


There's 3 different shades of rock per side, but you can tell they are all supposed to be pink/blue.


All wrapped up for Christmas! The ribbon is sewn into the side.


Kinged!

Are you kidding me?! This is awesome! What a cool idea. I actually love the quilt. It's whimsy with its wavy lines. The "imperfections" are what make homemade crafts real and unique. Good job!

That's really cool!  I made my boyfriend a tetris lap quilt/floor game, so I'm always excited to see other games.  I really like the felted rocks.  They look so pretty.
