I have been toying with an idea to embroider a quilt for a long time... Now i don't want to do an entire quilt (stupid idea and i KNOW i would never finish it...) but i have been considering creating a "footer" panel and then using a nice fabric for the rest. Just a small single bed quilt about the same size as my pink butterfly quilt i made last year. You can just see the pink quilt in the back ground of this post. [CLICK].
The post mentioned above was also about making this quilt. you can see the footer i have there is very very complicated and will take a lot of time. I want to make a 'stitch sampler' that i can turn into a quilt. So i had a brainwave tonight after having a look at Needle N Thread.
Why not Write a quote on the fabric and use different stitches and then have little drawings around it???
Mary did a fantastic example on her "Quick Brown Fox" sampler.
I NEED A QUOTE!!
A Quilt Quote...
This should be fun.
Everyone can send me a message with their FAVORITE QUOTE of all time. I am thinking more literary quotes here, NOT biblical quotes if that is ok... However i wont mind.
I'm quite sure that you will all come up with things that are better than mine. (here are a couple i got while on the phone and from friends earlier...)
EDIT: I have found the quote!!!! please keep sending me quotes (yes even the ones that i got via email because you were toooo embarrassed...)
Here is the quote:
"Man who want pretty nurse, must be patient."
(Note i am a nursing student and my fiance is just starting med school)
"It is a truth universally acknowledged that every good man must be in want of a wife..." :-)
" To be, or not to be..."
"I think therefore i am"
"The pen is mightier than the sword"
" He who lives by the sword dies by the sword"
"Keep your friends close and your enemies closer"
"All power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely"
"A picture is worth a thousand words"
"Someday your prince charming will come. Mine just took a wrong turn, got lost, and is too stubborn to ask for directions."
"To err is human, to forgive divine."
"Early to bed and early to rise, Makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise."
"Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny."
anyway any ideas appreciated :-)
Then i need to figure out HOW to do the quilt design... the stitches will be the easy part methinks!!!
