When I heard about the Trunk Full of Quilts online trunk show event hosted by Soma of Whims and Fancies and after touring the show myself this mornig from the comfort of my home, warm in my winter bathrobe, sipping my moring tea, I was inspired to take a look through my own archives and share all the WORD quilts in my collection of quilt.
My "trunk" was a little more full than I remember!
Here is one of my very first quilts: Oh Happy Day.
These letters were traced from a lettering template and appliqued on.
Thennnn I found the book: Word Play Quilts by Tonya Ricucci
and found myself adding words to wallhangings...
...and even on the back of quilts to personalize them.
Most of all, after making wonky hearts on and off for a year, I pulled them altogether in this Aniversary Quilt I finished for my husband and I in 2014 by adding our "favorite" words to the quilt.. Click over to here to read more about this fun finish and check out my tutorial for making those fun hearts!
(Be forewarned: they ARE addictive to make!)
I continued to use this book to create my "word" for 2014 which was:
And my "word" for 2015 that has been:
And my latest finish which most of you have seen, our grandson's birthday quilt.
Once again, I used letting templates and appliqued these words on.
Thank you again Soma for this fun trunk show and for my being awarded such an awesome prize!
In gratitude and...
