Important Letters


This is a fun little project I've got going on these days. I took some scraps and made letters. Put those letters on white et voila! I can't wait to share this one, but I need to wait as the recipient may be reading...

I'd volunteered to make the quilt for her after a tragic event. Another friend gave me some fabric and it languished. Lack of a clear vision kept me from moving forward. Then, one night, I had a dream. Pregnancy dreams are always quite vivid. And for once it wasn't a nightmare or something completely messed up. I dreamt this quilt. Hormones for good!

While I didn't follow it directly when it came to constructing mine, Elizabeth Hartman has a great tutorial here for making the letters.

I love this idea! I have so much scrap fabric...I am thinking of lots of ideas for this. Hmmm....

Wow! Looks like a winner! Wish my dreams were as inspiring! I'm usually running away from something or trying to get somewhere ON TIME in my dreams. :0

Your letters look great.
I was also inspired by Elizabeth's quilt and am trying to finish mine this month.
Good luck.

Quilts made for people are extra special warm hugs.
