We have friends that absolutely LOVE Settlers of Catan. They are pregnant with their first baby so my wife made them a Settlers of Catan baby blanket. She made the tiles actual size, and around the board she quilted in stylized versions of the different materials.

I think it turned out pretty great!

Game board

Wheat (our favorite)

Settlement and City

Sheep

Wood

Rock (it's hard to make a rock look cute and fluffy for a baby)

Brick

I hope you let your wife know that random fellow hobbyists on the internet are staggered by her extreme awesomeness. This is a nifty idea beautifully and cleverly executed. I hope they'll love it (and clearly the kid will be getting a good start in life!). I'm just imagining the kid 20 years from now being on BGG and finding this thread. laugh

    Was that with a Walking Foot or hand stitched?

    My wife made the mistake of assembling hexes instead of doing them applique. Apparently hexes are quite hard to piece together.

My husband told me this website had photo of a really nice baby blanket. He sent me here. That was quite intricately done.

These were raw edge appliqued on with a walking foot. My wife has also assembled difficult shapes like hexes before and it is quite difficult. She says the secret is to "set in the seams" this means nothing to me, but I'm sure a quilter will know what that means.

I have indeed let her know that random fellow hobbyists are enjoying her handiwork. She is glad you all like it and is thankful for your enthusiasm.

    I look forward to buying you a beer at World Boardgaming Championships this year, just five miles away from Quilter's Alley, Rt. 340 between Bird in Hand and Intercourse.

Let's vote: is Josh's wife awesome or super-awesome? (I think we all know how this one's going to turn out).
