I use to sell inspirational word quilts but stopped making them. Here is some photo’s of cards I carry made from those quilts I designed.
A customer of mine asked if I would be willing to make a set of special ones for two eight year old girl friends. The words would be “Best Friends”. She sent me a special fabric that she purchase for the center of the quilts. The fabric is by designer Mary Engelbreit.
I picked the little girls by the fence to use as the center of my word quilts. I went ahead and painted on the words “Best Friends” in a matching blue. I also decided to paint the girls clothing, hair and fence to draw you eye to the center of the quilt. I had some Riley Blake charm squares I just purchased from https://www.etsy.com/shop/Jambearies that I used to do the small border around the girls. I am going to appliqué different size hearts on the quilt using different colors from the charm pack.
I have a wonderful variegated thread that I am going to use to quilt the background to add even more color.
I hope the little girls like it when they receive them. It is hard not to see someone’s reactions when they get a gift that I made.

A quick update on the girls quilts! All done!
My camera broke while taking these so they show a little blue! But they are on a white background fabric!
