First Tic-Tac-Toe Quilt

I finished my first tic-tac-toe quilt, using 9 of the blocks that I received from the January lotto.  (The quilt itself is actually square, although that's not completely obvious in this photo.)  I mirrored the wonky blocks in the setting, and then continued the theme in the quilting.  I echo-quilted the lines in each of the blocks.

I love these blocks - they are so nice and bright.  I can't wait to finish my plans for the next set.

I included everyone's name on the label for this quilt (click the photo to enlarge).  I thought I had blocks from 9 differnt people, until I went to write out the label.  I swapped some blocks around, and apparently ended up with only 8 contributers.

This quilt is on its way to my guild meeting on Wednesday, to be donated to the local children's hospital.

  3. I love the idea of the names on the back, and also the subtlety of sashing each block with the same WOW to give it each one some unity (at least I think that's what you did).

  4. Who knew that the tic-tac-toe "block" also makes a great, liberated setting idea? What a cool little quilt.

    For Madame Samm, my directions for making the blocks are here: Let's Play Tic-Tac-Toe. Krista has more information about how she put them together on her blog, here: A Tic-Tac-Toe Stash Report.

  5. That's a great setting - I love the double tic-tac-toe...

    I made some of these blocks for myself, only reversing the colours (a white cross on a bright background) but have yet to work out how to set them. I'd pinch this idea, but unfortunately, it won't really work because the backgrounds aren't all the same colour. Still, I might play with a variation on it.

  6. I'm not sure how I missed this post before - how wonderful that you finished the quilt already! Hats off to you - for finishing and being so clever with the setting. Very nice that you included our names on the back.
