Word Art Quilt

This quilt was commissioned by someone at work. It is actually the third quilt I have made for her that she has given as gifts. This one includes words that are meaningful to her husband’s grandfather. It was for his 80th birthday. The empty center spot is where is his name is. 3-DSCN7382
She gave me the words and I put them into the format you see above and sent it off to Spoonflower to print.

Here is a closeup of my corner pattern. 2-DSCN7377

I quilted in the ditch and just a couple of lines through the panel. I sewed the binding on by machine. I first attach the binding to the front and fold it over to the back, the same as if you were going to hand bind and then I stitch in the ditch from the front, catching in the back. Sometimes it works out really really well.

The quilt finishes at 28 x 34 and will be used as a lap quilt. As it is passed down through the family it will be hung on the wall. 

Have you made recent treasures lately?

    I really love the word art quilt idea. Spoon flower is so awesome. This is a lovely quilt. I’m sure it will mean a lot to the recipient.
