This book revives the exhilaration and joy of playing childhood games with a medley of spirited quilt projects. These games are played at the sewing machine with thread, vibrant fabric, and an open mind. It's okay to be a rule-breaker in these games. A strict code of 1/4 inch seam allowances, impeccable grain lines, perfect color matches, and flawless points is not enforced with these playful projects. Elements of design, such as proportion and scale, balance, rhythm, and focus, will become second nature with the author's fun approach. The quilt projects include lively favorites such as Pin the Tail on the donkey, Tic-Tac-Toe, Ring Around the Rosy, and Hopscotch. Each project has three sections: the Object of the Game, Game Plan, and Your Move. All provide instructions for creating the quilts. As you are guided through making a mock-up of the game, forming your own version of the quilt becomes recreational. Each game includes photographs of several variations to inspire you. Break free from the conventional and discover creative energies that have been there all the time, just waiting to be released.
