Step 1.
Begin by prepping your materials. Trim your fabrics down to a size that fits on the mat. Place the Fabric Support Sheet onto the mat (glossy side down). Remove the protective blue sheet when you are ready to use. (See Figure #1)

Step 2.
Begin by marking seam allowances. (See Figure #2)

Step 3.

Place fabrics on the mat. Use the “Background Scan” function to see exactly where the fabrics are placed. (See Figure #3)

Step 4.
Arrange the tic-tac-toe squares on the screen, using the “Background Scan” image as your guide. (See Figure #4)

Step 5.
Begin first by marking seam allowances. Next, cut out your fabrics. (See Figure #5)

My Settings:
• Blade depth: 3.5
• Blade pressure: 5
• Blade speed: 1

Step 6.
Continue with the perimeter fabric pieces of the board. (See Figure #6)

Step 7.
Begin piecing your quilt. Start with the tic-tac-toe grid by piecing in strips (three across). Then sew the strips together. You can either press seams to the side or make open. (See Figure #7)

Step 8.
When you’ve finished piecing the top, attach the magnets that you will pocket inside. (See Figure #8)

Step 9.
Cut a piece of quilt batting that is the same size as your tic-tac-toe grid. Measure a grid matching your quilted grid. (See Figure #9)

Step 10.
Using scrap quilting cotton, iron the Iron-on Adhesive to one side. Cut out the magnet squares from the pattern download. (Use the Standard Mat with the Iron-On Adhesive placed down. You can use the same settings that were used for the quilting cotton.) (See Figure #10)

Step 11.
Place the magnets in the center of each tile. (See Figure #11)

Step 12.
Iron the magnet squares over the top of each magnet to hold in place. (See Figure #12)

Step 13.
Place the magnet grid batting-side up under your quilt. Place another, larger piece of batting under it. Complete the quilt sandwich with a large piece of quilting cotton at the bottom. (See Figure #13)

Step 14.
Quilt the sandwich using your Brother sewing machine. (If you have a Walking Foot, use it!) (See Figure #14)

Step 15.
Now cut out your playing pieces from stiff poly felt. (See Figure #15)

Step 16.
Place the felt on your Standard Mat with the Fabric Support sheet in place. Remember, if you have a lot of fuzzies and frays, use an alcohol-free and scent-free baby wipe to remove them to clean your mat. (See Figure #16)

Step 17.
Use “Background Scan” for scanning your felt and then place the pattern pieces on it. (See Figure #17)

Figure #17

Step 18.
Change your settings, sit back, and let your ScanNCut do the work! (See Figure #18) In “Cut” Settings, set the following parameters:
• Blade Depth: “8”
• Blade Pressure: “’9”
• Blade Speed: “1”

Step 19.
Sandwich a small magnet between the two layers and sew the perimeter. (See Figure #19)

Step 20.
Next, take the circular template and cut from a piece of cardstock or large paper. Using the template, measure and mark the centre on your quilt and also mark the circular perimeter. Cut and discard scraps. (See Figure #20)

Step 21.
Now it’s time to add the binding. (See Figure #21)

Capture

Figure #21

Step 22.
Bias tape is a great way to bind curved edges. See how to bind using bias tape here. (See Figure #22)

Capture

Figure #22

Step 23.
Sandwich a small magnet between the two layers and sew the perimeter. (See Figure #23) Attach a large hair elastic at the edge. To roll game, fold in two sides and roll towards the elastic. Use the elastic to keep your game rolled up.
