One Little Word (Four months later)



My guild (Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild) participated in the One Little Word Challenge in January.  The idea was to choose a word to inspire you for the year and make a quilt that you can look at and be inspired all year.  The other members of my guild made quilts ranging in size from a mug rug to a twin size quilt.  They were all great!  Click the link above to see them!




 I picked the word "Grow."  I want to grow as a quilter and as a person this year.  I tried to use some of my new skills in this little wall quilt.  I made some wonky free pieced letters, some raw edge applique leaves, and quilted FMQ, echo quilting, a spiral, some straight quilting and some wavy line quilting.  I used a variety of solids to bind it (just finished it!... I did everything except the binding back in January!)







 Here it is hanging across from my sewing machine in my new little sewing room!  (I stapled it up this morning! hehe).
