Order your supplies for the Hope Yoder Bean Bag Toss project at Moore’s Sewing Center!
Moore’s Sewing Centers has some special one of a kind offers for you while we are Staying Safe at home. I chose this project to share with you with a few hints and videos to help you make your own game. This is a great in the hoop project to use indoors or outside. Best of all, the game board (quilt top) is so pretty you will want to display it. You’re sure to love the mylar and the sentiments on the bean bags, I know I do!

Print all PDF documents and read them to understand the instructions. The CD includes instructions to make a large 40” x 40” x 40” or small 30 “ x 30” x 30” gameboard. I made the larger size and used my 10 5/8” x 10 5/8” hoop on my Luminaire for the large blocks. This is one of my favorite hoops that was included with Upgrade Kit 1 for the Luminaire and Solaris. If you do not have the Upgrade, talk to George. The 4 x 4” designs on the bean bags were slightly too large for the embroidery area on my Luminaire, so I reduced the designs using the Edit/Size/Recalc Stitch option.
Here’s a glimpse of my Bean Bag Toss quilt. I love the Fabrics, Mylar, and Mat Threads. I did not realize that the Flawless 60 weight threads could have been used on the bee’s satin stitch and wings. This thread would have created a beautiful sheen on the wings. Use Flawless EF 361 Light blue for the wings mylar tack-down and Flawless EF 900 Black for the Satin Stitch.
The Bamboo batting can be quilted 8 – 10” apart. Use a walking foot like the Dual Feed Foot to create echo stitching, free motion, or use My Design Center. I do plan to add some circles inside the corner triangles. I just did not have that completed for this blog. The bamboo batting is 50% cotton and 50% bamboo.
I used Moda Grunge for my background fabric and Hope’s Sun n Soil Fabric by Blank Quilting for the rest of the quilt.
I got a bit lost in the wordiness of the cutting instructions so I created a table for you. Use Hope’s or mine to yield the same results.
