A few weeks ago we were treated to the first of four 21st Century Round Robin quilts. The quilting always changes the look of a quilt and these little gems are no exception.
I wanted to do something very modern and edgy. Using the idea of Twitter communication for inspiration, I thought I would quilt my ‘Tweet’. I drew my Tweet on non-fusible interfacing; quilted through the interfacing on the drawn lines; then removed the interfacing to reveal the message.
I changed the thread colour to match the fabric colour. I have used Aurifil Mako 40wt cotton AND Aurifil Mako 50wt cotton.
The Hash-tag and letters needed to ‘pop’ and the ‘matchstick’ quilting was easy to complete with FMQ (free motion quilting).
I have photographed this little quilt at an angle so the message can be seen in relief.
This little quilt says it all about creating with Aurifil….#FUN.
