    I want ot make al my gifts this year. Since I began quilting, that is all I wish to do! Go figure, right? Well, I have a girl int he family who loves board games, so I thought I'd make a quilted checker board and make the chips from Yo yo's. Does anyone know of any other quilted games to make? I've seen the Sudoku quilt's, I thought about making a grid board and keep the 9 sets of 9 blocks separate so you could have a different game each time. Any ideas?

    How about Parcheesi, with buttons for the playing pieces? We used to have a game called Tribulation that had a 10x10 grid of random numbers 1-9. You drew a number from the pile (1-50) and you got a point (we just kept the number chip we found) if you were the first one to find a 3 number combination that equaled that number (25 could be 9x2+7 or 6x5-5). The 3 numbers had to be in order, in a straight line, and touch on a side or corner. I made one for my kids at school and wrote the 1-50 numbers on poker chips. Winner was the one with the most points when the last number combo was found. It was a lot of fun!

    Twister. I'm not quite sure how you'd make the spinner, but the big mat with the circles would be an interesting quilt. IMO

    Twister would be very interesting. I think it would be better on a quilt than on that slippery mat they give you when you buy it in the store.

    Tic - tac - toe would be simple... could use yo-yos for this too.

    They all sound good! i've never played Tribulation, Backgamon, or Tripoli. I'll have to google the rules! I love twister ND THE TIC TAC TOE would be easy.

    There's fabric that's printed with a regular size Monopoly board. All you need to do is get the other pieces. I bought several old Monopoly games on garage sales until I had enough pieces to make up the game.

    sometime-------------I intend to make a checkerboard with quilt blocks----------except each black square will be a counted cross stitch block rather than pieced. If I can ever find 32 patterns that are about the same sized.

    There's a game board pattern on Kaye Wood's site that looks pretty cute. It has three or four games on it. She also has a video showing how to make it. I think you can even watch part of the video in her free section.

    there is a pattern for a game quilt out there that has 5 or 6 games on it. I made those one year for my grandsons and put different games on each quilt. Was a very good inventment. Can be used over an dover again.

    :-D

    What a great idea to use yo yos for the checker pieces. I have a pattern that calls for buttons like the yo yos better.

    IBEQUILTIN is your avatar a pom? She's beautiful.

    If you get the CandyLand fabric, or Monopoly, they have the board in the fabric, so you could use that to make the game

    My mom made a game quilt. It has Checkers, some dolls to play dress up, Chutes and Ladders, hopscotch, and a couple more. There are 6 different games on it and a score board made from the chalkboard material (it's attached with velcro because it can't go in the washing machine) There is a pocket by each game board with the pieces for it. It's a christmas present so I'm assuming that we will have to play with it lots at christmas.
