Quilt Stash Games

maritime_lindaNovember 10, 2012

Good Saturday Morning Ladies, I came across these 2 games on a quilting blog and thought they'd be great for a retreat or guild meeting. They are new to me, but perhaps you have all heard of them and played them. If so, go back to your machines and happy quilting. :-)

Musical Fabric Stash

Each person in the circle starts with 1 yard of fabric. The music begins and you'll pass the fabric around in a circle. Once the music stops, you'll cut the fabric in your hands in half. You keep half and then the next round starts. We'll continue to pass and slash the fabrics until we end up with scrap-sized pieces left. The fabric you keep each round becomes yours to take home, so you'll leave with a yard of various prints.

What to bring:

- As many 1 yard cuts of fabric as you'd like (we can do multiple smaller rounds or a few really large rounds). Fabric should be quilting-weight cotton with a modern design.

- Scissors

Strip Poker

Building on the fun from our 1stAnniversary party, strip poker is back again! We'll play rounds of "poker" (highest single card wins). Each round you'll bet a 2 1/2 " fabric strip. Winner takes all!

What to bring:

- As many 2 1/2 " x WOF strips as you'd like. Jelly rolls work great for this, but you can also cut your own.

Cute ideas, Linda!
