I know I promised a post on this yesterday, but the day got a bit out of hand. Sorry 'bout that!
Today looks to be just as busy but since I'm sitting here chatting with the Talkin' Tuesday group on Twitter, I thought I could take a moment to type this up too!
The gift was well received! Well, I think so anyway, he's not very excitable. I think that's why I am, I have to make up for him ;)
The quotes are from our song "What I Got" by Sublime. It's not your conventional love song, but that's ok. It's still ours.
I branched out and tried something new with the quilting. I knew I wanted something dense, and to not quilt the letters so they would stand out. Bree suggested sharp stippling, from the Free Motion Quilting Project. I aimed for it when I started but something else came out!
I really love how it makes the letters look gothic on the back.
I quilted a little hidden gem into it. I totally pointed it out though, he would have never seen it on his own and I would have been driven mad waiting for him to!
These will hang in our living room when we finally paint it. I've only been saying that for how many months now? Soon! And I'll get better, non-shadowy pictures too!
I made this in conjuction with the Proverbial Quilt Along with Poppyprint. You should check out the Flickr group, there is some good stuff happening there!
