If you are a quilter or sewer, you will love the new “Quilt-opoly” board game from The DMC Corporation that debuted at International Quilt Market. Its like Monopoly, (which by the way, I’ve always loved to play) but features quilts and quilting. The properties are all quilt blocks with escalating degrees of complexity.
I have a special love for “Quilt-opoly” – I designed the graphics for it, including the quilt block properties, the the actual quilt stitching properties shown in the center of each row, as well as some of the sayings on the cards. It was a fun project to work on and I just love the way it turned out. And I can’t wait to play!
In addition to “Quilt-opoly”, I designed and created the quilt blocks in DMC’s booth featuring their fibers and threads for quilting. I really loved working with the various textures represented in the various fibers of their product line.
As a special note, I want to say that The DMC Corporation is not going bankrupt or out of business. Since I have worked with DMC a lot over the past several years, I occasionally get asked this question. DMC-US is a separate entity and is doing just fine. They have sold their other divisions and are concentrating on the fibers only and are doing extremely well, I’m happy to say!
Tomorrow, I will write about another “celebrity” that I met at Quilt Market as well as show come of the many gorgeous quilts that I saw there. So, please check back!
