Personalizing Quilts with Handwriting

Quilted CursiveGood Morning, Quilters!

Looking for a great way to personalize your quilts?  Use your handwriting!  There are a variety of ways you can use handwriting in quilting.

First, mark your quilts with evenly spaced lines (Chalk is my favorite marker) and stitch rows of cursive as a background fill.  Stitch a song, poem, or recipe, or list the recipients favorite things.

Another way to personalize a quilt–tuck little messages in among the other quilting motifs.  Tell the recipient “You, are the bees knees!”  or “I’m over the moon for you!”

Free Motion Quilting, HandwritingI love this technique.  Not only does it add a personal note, it records YOUR handwriting.

YOUR family will cherish the quilt forever!

What about YOU?

Have YOU ever added a hidden message in a quilt?

What did you write?

We’d LOVE to hear!
