New Additions to Quote Quilt


I'm still adding more things to the quote quilt, as you can tell from the title. These are the new additions this week.

I added mostly decorative things this week. No deep meanings behind most of these. In the photo above, I  added the boy sleeping under a crazy quilt. The quote and the moon were there from previous additions.

This sun quote is on one of my index cards drawings. I got it from an art journal page I saw on YouTube. I really like the confidence of this quote.

I have pi on the circle quilt, and thought it would be nice to have here as well.  The diagonal lines kept distracting me so the pi is at an angle. I could fix it, but I think it still looks like pi.

This quote looked like it had some space for a little something, and since it said heart, I added hearts. The things at the bottom are supposed to be flowers, but if you thought paintbrushes or torches or faces something else, I am fine with that.

2020:  Weeks 48 of 15 Minutes to Stitch

We had a short, virtual Thanksgiving gathering, and a stay at home advisory. Since I had a long Thanksgiving weekend, I had plenty of time to add lots of things to the quote quilt.

I also soaked some walnuts to extract some dye and dyed some fabric for a little fabric booklet.  I didn't heat set it before I washed it so most of it washed out.  So I have soaked them in coffee and this time, I will heat set it before washing in vinegar, and hopefully some of the color will stay.

Love the Helen Keller quote - so wise.

Really like the new additions. Yes, it looks like Pi, and yes, they look like flowers (although I tried really hard to see the faces - no luck).

Your sun quote reminds me of what I told my mother when she was bemoaning her lack of housekeeping. I told her the sun would come up tomorrow whether she dusted or not.

I boiled some walnut shells and dipped some fabric in the water. It took the stain so fast. It was much darker than I expected. I don't think it will ever wash out. . . I have a lot to learn about dying fabric.

I love the first quote. I think it would make a great addition to a quilt label.

Sleeping under a hand made quilt is truly joyous. Love those sweet hearts.

You are making great progress on this quilt, Shasta! It looks so interesting. Will you enter it in a show somewhere, sometime? It would be fun to see it in person when it's finished.

Very fun additions to the quote quilt. I like the quote about sunrise and those hearts. Hope you got in a good week of stitching time this week. My apologies for being so slow to respond the last week, it was one of those just scrapping by weeks.

I can imagine generations in the future spending sleepless nights under your quilt reading it!
