Game Over by Lisa Johnson
For my noughts and crosses game I have used the decoratively stitched outer leg seams from a pair of old jeans and unpicked and reused an early 1900s American feedback patchwork block. The block squares are faded, stained and very worn. I have used some of the denim to make the binding, the noughts, and thecrosses are the belt loops.
