I've posted about this mini quilt a couple of times, you can see it here and here. It's only a mini so you would have thought one post would be enough without me harping on about it for months!
I was stumped by the quilting. I took me ages to think of a design, then when I started quilting it, my new machine had a hissy fit and I had to give up. I got it done in the end though. It shows up really nicely on the back which is a non-branded blue with white polka dots.
Here's a close up of those swirls and pointy bits, it was a bit annoying having to do inside the letters.
Then came time to bind it - I made a length of scrappy binding using some of the Kona reds I'd used for the text.
And low and behold, it was finished!
The lyrics are from Broken Strings by James Morrison. It's a love song, but it screams depression at me. Silently of course.
I did credit him - I used one of the fancy alphabet fonts on my Janome.
I also remembered the hanging corners!
At July's Guild meeting I took the letters for Silent Scream #2 and pieced them into words, then into the lyrics. I haven't quite finished here as there's a bit of a gap top right and I think I need to bring it out a little so I don't end up with the binding sitting right next to those bottom words.
The lyrics are from Pray by Take That, written by Gary Barlow. Again, it says depression to me.
Is it depressing to make a series of quilts about depression? The actual making of the quilt makes me feel quite happy, so I suppose not.
