The Game Quilt

John and I have a super wonderful friend who lives in Lake Havasu City, AZ. We don't see her much, but we keep in contact with email and letters. She is a very talented quilter and has sent our family quilts over the years for special occasions. My children can't remember a time ever meeting her in person, but they talk about her like they know her well because of the quilts she
has made for them.

This past weekend we got a package in the mail from her. A quilt. Not just any ordinary quilt, but a GAME quilt. It includes checkers, tic-tac-toe, double rings, and two other games. It is such a beautiful quilt, I've been tempted to hang it on the wall for display instead of spread it out on the floor for play.
I've heard more " this is awesome", "wanna play on the game quilt?", "I love this quilt", and other happy comments from my children this past weekend than I can count.

Thank you, Mary Lou, for creating a centerpiece for FUN in our family. Your quilt is a treasure, just like you!


  1. WOW! That is WAY cute!!! Now I want to figure out how to do that!

  2. That is an awesome quilt. What a great friend you have. I'm glad to hear everyone is feeling better at your house, it sounds like January was rough.
