Backgammon Quilt

I used a cotton tea towel printed with a backgammon board for the center of this quilt.  I found the towel in the antique store when I discovered the bandana which I used for the “Say Cheese” baby quilt.  I framed the game board with black strips and the red and yellow squares, then added a simple border of black fabric with white specks.  The quilt is 48.5 in X 58.5 in.  It is machine pieced and quilted.
Here is a close up of the center.
And even closer.
Here’s the back.  The center strip is more golden yellow than it showed up in my photo.
