    Default Monopoly Quilt Top Completed

    I had several people at the Fall Forum Retreat ask me to post pics of the Monopoly quilt top when I finished it. I put the last seam in tonight. I need to sandwich and figure out how I want it quilted.

    This top is extra special because Bernice (Stitching Woman) and Jean (JeanSewingMachine) put in a seam or two while we were at the Fall Forum Retreat.

    I've been curious to see this one after reading several posts where it was mentioned. Now I can see why the girls were so excited about it. It's wonderful, brings back lots of childhood memories of marathon Monopoly games.

    That turned out great and a lot bigger than I imagined it would. I wonder if there is a dollar sign quilting pattern.

    Karen,

    Sandy Navas is checking into digitizing the Monopoly tokens and then I could get it quilted in rows of tokens. I think that would be super neat, but dollar signs would be a great idea if the tokens don't work out.

    And yes it is much bigger than I was expecting. I'm going to find a quilt rack to hang it on the wall in my bedroom. I think it will have to be folded to fit into the space that I have for it.

    Yes, this is a me quilt. Most of the quilts I have done have been gifts or ended up being gifted. I collect Monopoly memorabilia and this has a place on my bedroom wall where I have most of the Monopoly collection.
