Two years ago I made a Game Quilt for
a Sports Club to auction.
I shared some of the blocks from that quilt, (see links below)
but didn't get around to sharing the Othello Game Block.
Right after I made that quilt,
I start another game quilt,
but my physical health brought that progress to a stand still.
Now, I'm back at it.
So here is how, I made this very simple,
not really pieced block.
The one thing that had been done before progress came to a stand still
was cut out the green square and use an iron off marker
to mark off the spaces.
After 2 years the lines were still there.
The stitches also covered the line,
so no worries about ironing them off.
So all that was left to be done was stitch the lines and add a border.
On my machine, I used the Triple Stretch Stitch, which is two stitches forward, one stitch back.
(Reminds me of the song that says 2 steps forward, one step back.)
This stitch makes a nice solid line with regular weight thread.
Scraps either someone gave me or found at a Florida second hand store, or yard sale.
Game pieces are ready to be made.

Game quilt and some of it's blocks.
