    Dad's Scrabble Quilt

    I made this Scrabble quilt for my dad for Christmas. I found the Scrabble fleece for the backing at Joann's this week. I think he's going to love it!

    That is just wonderful, and the backing just takes it over the top.
    How did you do the letters?

    I bought the scrabble letters by the yard on line an cut each letter into 3 1/4 by 3 inch blocks. I made 9 patch blocks and sewed them together into rows (5 rows, 5 nine patch blocks per row). It has warm and natural batting and the fleece backing. Each block is stitched in the ditch quilting. All done on Pinky!

    wonderful quilt
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I bought my letters from equilter.com. Here's the link: http://www.equilter.com/product/1366...-24-x-44-panel

    I had to buy three yards to get all the letters I needed (I needed lots of "B"s!). I have quit a few left over but no "B"s! I'm hoping to see if I can make a couple more. The fleece backing I got from my local Joann's. It's not sold on-line. Hope this helps!

    Exactly! Me and my husband play it sometimes with son and daughter in law. We love that game, but hubby usually wins.
