    Bingo Block Quilt for Soldier

    Our guild celebrated their 10th anniversary last month. We had so much fun playing games and watching a slide show of all the projects we made over the years. One of our games was bingo from fabric. Each member could make 1 or 2 blocks to play - just like a bingo card five across and five down but you have the first row of 5 green 2 1/2 inch squares, then blue, purple/pink but a black one in the center for the free spot, then yellow/orange and the red. We played three games and the final one was covering the whole card. Some of our members are a little competitive lol. I had volunteered to sew the squares together, attached is one of the three quilts that will be made. We had 63 blocks so unfortunately had to put one on the back of each quilt but wanted to use them all.

    Neat quilt! So how do you play quilt Bingo? I understand the coloured rows but how did you call the individual squares?

    I like this quilt! Sometimes we think the blocks have to be complicated - this one really stands out!

    After speaking with grandma peg, I did a search and found the info on the fonsandporter.com site it was in 2006, it looks like a great retreat game as well. The calling cards can be printed out, at their site just add /bingo to it.
