Hey guys! As most of you know we participate in a Keeper’s At Home girls group and this month I’m teaching quilting. So I needed a fun and easy project that covered quilting basics, was beginner friendly, and that we’d be able to complete in one night.
So we ended up making this really cute tic-tac-toe board. It takes about an hour and a half to complete, and uses minimal supplies.
This project is super beginner friendly, and teaches beginner quilting techniques all the way from piecing, quilting, and binding! So not only is it a great way to learn how to the basics, but you’ll end up with a fun project at the same time!
- 2 fat quarters (Pick two contrasting colors)
- 10.25” x 10.25” batting (I use Warm and White cotton batting for most of my projects)
- Spray Basting (I like 505 Temporary Fabric Adhesive)
- Buttons: 5 each of 2 different colors (You can really use anything you want as game pieces!)
- Rotary trimmer (I like this one: Olfa Splash 45mm Rotary Cutter)
- Self Healing Cutting Mat (I have a Fiskars 18”x24” light blue mat)
- Clear Acrylic Ruler
- Coordinating thread (I’m using Aurifil 50wt natural white)
- Straight pins (I like glass head straight pins)
- Sewing Machine
Cutting instructions for fat quarters are shown below. You do not have to use fat quarters, you’re welcome to use whatever fabric you have on hand, as long as you cut the specified pieces as listed below.
Fat Quarter 1:
- Cut 1 – 10.25” x 10.25” fabric piece (board backing)
- Cut 5 – 3.5” squares
Fat Quarter 2:
- Cut 2 – 2.25” x 22” strips (binding)
- Cut 4 – 3.5” squares
- Cut 1 – 2.25” x 11” strip (binding)
Cut 1 – 10.25” x 10.25” square
Okay, now that your cutting is done you’re ready to go! Let’s get sewing! Watch my Quilted Tic-Tac-Toe video here!
