Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Fabric Bingo

Friday night my quilt guild got together on Zoom to play Fabric Bingo.  We each made at least one Bingo card.  The colors were the letters — Red – Green – Pink/Purple – Yellow/Orange – Blue.  The colors could go in any order except the Pink/Purple had to go in the middle since the Black square was the “free”.

The numbers were the categories — batiks, dots, florals, geometrics, hearts, leaf prints, metallic, holiday, novelty, paisley, plaid, solids or tone on tones, stars, stripes, and 1930’s prints.

The call might be “Green Novelty” and I’d place my marker on the lemonade stand on the left block.  The way we played, fabrics could fall into multiple categories.  For instance the 2nd green square from the top of the second block could be Green Leaf, Green Floral, or Green Metallic  (there is a silver outline around the flowers).

The first two or three games we played straight lines and I won the first game — a $10 gift certificate to a LQS.  Then we played ‘corners’ and finally blackout.

There is talk of playing monthly, so I’ll need to make a couple more cards, this time digging into the stash instead of relying on my precut 2 1/2″ squares and strips.  Just today I found ‘Blue Hearts’ when I started digging out fabric for the guild BOM.  I need to pull out some 30’s fabric and locate some more paisleys.

At some point, we’ll gather all of the “cards” and put them together for a charity quilt.

One Thought on “Fabric Bingo

  1. Congratulations on the win!

    Thanks for describing your “Bingo” experience. I love that the blocks will become a charity quilt at some point. That’s nice how everyone can make their own blocks, have fun playing “Bingo”, and participate in the giving in the end.

    We may try to incorporate this activity into our guild in the future.

    Thanks again, Pam, for sharing.
