Weekly Stitching Post

I've continued working on the quote quilt this week. I stole this idea of "She withstood the storm" from a Facebook post. The umbrella fabric is used in the drunkard's path quilt and the dress fabric is used in the yo-yos. I will embroider the words and work more on her hair and the boat.

This design is from the book I recently reviewed on my High Road Reader blog.

I made this bird a while ago, but don't think I have shown it yet. It is more subtle than most of the motifs so hopefully will provide a nice surprise to someone who discovers it.

This is a helping-hand, hand-on-heart, pledge-of-allegiance-hand, and not a talk-to-the-hand, keep-your-distance hand. I like that it looks like it has mehndi on it.

Your quilt is becoming a diary. Imagine the memories it will evoke in 10 years when you look at the quilt. Love your new additions.

This quilt is becoming more whimsical and exquisite with each visit. 'She' is very sweet. I would imagine one could look at your quote quilt for a very long time, discovering sweet stitching and the time capsule feeling of the quotes.

I really love this, makes me want to start something similar. (No, not another project!) I love the bird around the Eleanor Roosevelt quote especially.
