Do you know someone who needs to hear and see these words everyday? Maybe a kid? Maybe a friend? Maybe you?
How about sewing a quilt? This is the top I made in a few hours, using the reverse applique technique. The beautiful fabric is by Rubin Design Studio from equilter.com.
If you want to sew such a quilt, you need:
- 1 piece of fusible web (I used HeatNBond) 17” x 20”
- main fabric (multicolor): 17” x 20”
- black fabric: 17” x 20”
- the word design on paper (the words must be reversed)
Copy the design on the paper side of fusible web. Use a fine permanent marker for this. Make sure you keep the design centered on the fusible web.
Press the fusible web on the back of the main fabric.
Using a craft knife, cut out the letters.
Make sure you keep the center of the letters (see the yellow arrows below) – you will need those little pieces.
All the letters cut out- view from the paper side side.
The look from the fabric side.
Carefully remove the paper backing.
Press the cutout fabric on the black fabric.
Add those little pieces to complete the letters (see the yellow arrows).
Top of the quilt finished.
The AMAZING advantage of this technique? All the cutout letter remain intact and you can use them for a second project – you just applique them on a background fabric.
– horizontal straight lines spaced as desired, stitched with the walking foot.
– Mod Podge – it is why I used for some projects of this pattern; you will also find some free motion quilting ideas.
