English Subtitles

I wasn’t sure how I was going to quilt this Asian bed runner for my friend.

Then I thought that even though she has studied the Chinese language she might not know what the characters for the words were, so I decided to quilt the translation in the block.

I choose words that are meaningful to her.



and Friendship.

I also quilted the words into the smaller blocks.

It was much easier to quilt the words than I thought it would be.

I started out by practicing each word once to make sure I knew how I was going to handle dotting my “i’s” and crossing my “t’s.”


I wish my handwriting looked this good.

Maybe I need to hold the pen in my teeth and move the paper under the pen to improve my penmanship. 🙂
