Block party continues with Debby today...

Debby has supplied us with this game board block
I can just imagine what fabric choices you could choose
to have this standing out..
Are you game?


Debby Kratovil was Special Projects Editor with QUILT Magazine for 15 years, with over 600 articles published. In 2006 alone, she saw 54 of her quilts published, with another dozen sewn for major fabric companies. She has seen 25 of her quilts make the cover of quilting magazines, with 9 covers in 2006 alone. As she says, "I sew for the camera, making sure my quilts are very photogenic." She is a popular teacher both locally and nationally, as many happy students will attest. Debby authored "Bold, Black & Beautiful Quilts" (AQS, 2004), six quilting calendars for Accord/Andrews McMeel Publishing (2006 - 2012), a perpetual Quilter's Block-a-Day Calendar and companion CD by Martingale. Her latest book, Supersize "Em Quilts, is filled with 22 projects to appeal to any quilter's discriminating taste. Debby is a prolific quilter, designer, and illustrator. Her next book, "Perfect Paper Pieced Points" is due out in February 2013. Best of all, she enjoys every minute of it.
Currently she designs and sews quilts for 3 fabric companies and her quilts appear in a variety of magazines. She loves to travel and teach and working for the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo takes her to a dozen cities a year.
Debby takes her wide range of quilting skills from a pile of fabric to a finished quilt, then to creating the patterns and professional illustrations print-ready. Debby likes to say, "I've never met a fabric I didn't like." One of her special talents is making a beautiful quilt using challenging fabric collections. She is on very good terms with her computer and computerized sewing machines, which enables her to take a project from start to finish quickly.
Debby lives in Fairfax, Virginia with her husband Phil and dog Belle. She has 3 grown daughters and an awesome grandson!

thanks Debby for providing us all with interesting
blocks sew we can prepare for our new blog ....

My best


  1. Thanks for a new block design I think I will make mine ,red white and blue.

  2. Such a fun block! Makes me want to stay home from work just to sew one up in my red, white, and blue fabrics. Darn--guess my boss wouldn't like that.

  3. I like this block design -- I can see it in some modern brights that are in my stash. Thanks for the design, Debby!

  4. The old Parcheesi game comes to mind from this block. It would be interesting to see how a bunch of these blocks would look together. I'll have to check out Debbie's "crib" to see if a quilt of this block is there.

  5. The block looks very interesting to make =D

  6. Thank you for all the time you spent for instructions on this block.

  7. Oh do I remember playing that game...what a great idea!
