Here we have one of Nancy Cabot's marvelous hand-drawn illustrations for her version of TIC TAC TOE (there are a number of different blocks with this same title), published in the Chicago Tribune on August 18, 1934. The Cincinnati Enquirer first printed the pattern according to Jinny Beyer's QUILTER'S ALBUM (p. 198-5) a year earlier. Note the tiling is continuous, not seamless block to block, see below, or else the pattern needs to be alternated with plain blocks.
But what makes Cabot's illustration so special is that TIC TAC TOE, as a game board, is hand drawn (no rulers needed), just a spontaneous pastime with two people using any handy piece of paper and pencils and working either an "X" or an "O" into the squares, until one of the players aligns three in a row. So using narrow-lined stripes for the fabric print also seems quite appropriate. In her comments, Cabot states the following:
Dating from the opening years of the 19th century, "TIC TAC TOE" has been a favorite block. A variation of the nine patch, it shows a slight resemblance to "KITTY CORNER" and one of the several "PUSS-IN-THE-CORNER" blocks. It is an ideal block for the beginning quilt maker and fun for the experienced quilter because of the rapidity with which the pieces may be set together."
