Step 2: Begin sewing pieces together

Sew your fabric game boards in place.  I used a zig zag stitch to cover all my edges and provide for a stronger finish.  I used a piece of computer paper to back the checker board as I began to sew so my thinner fabric wouldn't bunch up in the stitching.  Sew on your game boards onto your top fabric in any order you want, I found the center of my fabric square and zig zagged the checker board on first then placed my other pieces symmetrically.  
Great dual purpose quilt ideas. I made one side of a quilt out of blue jeans that we used as a picnic blanket. It took a lot of beating and easily washed. This would have been a great idea to incorporate into the pattern. Thanks. You rate great. Hope to see more.
