I showed this as a top a few months back, but thanks to my good friend Carol it is now quilted. This is my daughter Mariah’s 6th grade graduation quilt. A remembrance quilt from the talent show she participated in that year and sang Santa Baby. I still need to attach the label. I have said it before but will say it again. I love words on quilts. Years from now someone will inherit this quilt or pick it up at the local goodwill store and within minutes they will know Riah’s story. The front tells a little and the label will tell the rest. All quilts tell a story, so it definitely doesn’t hurt to help them out a little by adding the actual story to the quilt top. I have many different methods I use for my lettering. I have used my computer fonts, I have pieced the letters with squares and triangles, I have fused, I have appliquéd and now my new favorite is to piece using Tonya’s wonky style. However you choose to do it the letters will add a whole new dimension to your quilts. And on a side note, these triangles were all leftover cuts from the quilt I made on Bonnie’s site called Smokey Mountain stars. I had absolutely no waste in the making of that quilt as all snipped corners were used in this quilt.
