The quilt is cool--it has 9 different game boards that you can make separately or that you can put together in one quilt. I added the borders thinking I might make individual boards but now that I've seen the quilt I'm doing that instead (so boarders will be going......) Since it's 'modern' I'll be doing these in solids. Here's my Chess board:
Yes--that's purple and yellow. I'll also be using Orange & Blue and Green and Red!
I'm having great fun making these wee 3" blocks. Hope I can keep it up! I'm using mostly Primitive Gatherings lines and mostly conversationals with a few companion fabrics thrown in--couldn't find my Union blues--still looking for them! I do have the right colors for these in other conversationals such as Sara Morgans's 'Moon & Stars', Judie Rothermel 'Classic Image 1870-1890s' from 2003 and some Ascot by Windham that I'll be adding in the future (and who knows what else!)
