My grandson Joshua loves games. I was planning on a birthday quilt that was about cars and trucks 'cause he loves those but his sister said it had to be something brighter! he loves to play all the "old" games like ludo and chinese checkers and snakes and ladders. it was a no brainer really. Snakes and ladders is it. The hardest part was working out the pattern and how big to make it. I used cotton fabric, various coloured threads for the applique and invisible thread for the quilting, keeping it simple.
