The first one has be delivered to the boy's school this afternoon!
I loved making this quilt top, but I don't like the finished design!
The process of making the scrappy along is so much fun and super quick!
To quilt it I decided to practice writing using FMQ. It is for the older children at the school so I quilted reading quotes into the quilt.
The thread shows up on some fabrics and not on others so the kids will need to look closely to find the words:
I loved quilting it! Putting words into quilts was great fun!
The quotes I quilted were:
"Once you learn to read, you will be forever free" Frederick Douglass
"I have always imagined that paradise would be a kind of library" Jorge Luis Borges
"Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read" Groucho Marx
My favourite is the last quote!
Along the bottom I put the words Enjoy, Read and Learn.
It has turned out pretty fun!
