Words to Live By


This project is a project that just speaks to my soul. Seriously. I add words into my quilting, I write down quotes….I love words. Many of these words are words I use on a regular basis.


Pat sent this quilt. Pat is pretty prolific…..she makes many projects…but most all of them have hand work involved…and require lots of time. So I am amazed at all that she gets accomplished. You have seen many of her works come across my blog. 🙂


So when she sent this she asked me to quilt similar to the original quilt from Primitive Gatherings. Primitive Gatherings has their quilts quilted by The Quilted Pineapple…you can visit her site for lots of quilty inspiration.  Beautiful works!


So I did change a few things…but followed for a majority of the designs. So as much as I would like to say these are my own Ideas..they aren’t….but it was lots of work and I had fun seeing it come to life in the process. 🙂 So I do get some credit for that. I had 4 thread changes…..and I used 2 layers of batting.


I am putting this directly on my list behind Bird Dance….once I finish Bird dance..I am making this quilt.

Here are some close ups of quilting…yummy!


Here’s the back:

I love the “Cross”…what you also can’t see is that Pat also put words on the back…. I *heart* that!

Thanks so much Pat! always a pleasure working with you!

I hope you love your quilt!
