Desi Quilter's January Challenge was to create a quilt for my sewing room that included text. I came up with this idea.
The word 'Quilt' was composed on the computer and then each letter was reverse appliqued. The heart was drawn with the help of a plastic template and also reverse appliqued. The other two pieces of text were free motion quilted on after the quilt was layered.
Tried free motion quilting a stipple on the quilt by machine, but needed a lot more practice, so I hand-quilted dragonflies and stippled the center panel. The borders were quilted in the ditch because I ran out of time. That'll teach me to leave things till the last moment! This quilt was done in four days and just made the extended deadline!
I'd better get cracking on February's Valentine's Day challenge!
Have a great day!
