A Common Thread of my life are quotes.  I love to collect inspirational, humorous, and compelling quotes.  I designed this quilt around my favorite.  There are 20 quotes embroidered on cream background surrounded by beautiful greys and corals.  Of all the quilts I have made, this is one of my very favorites and is, to me, a treasure.  I have made this quilt for a dear friend struggling with cancer and included inspirational sayings and scriptures.  I have made this quilt for a graduating senior using humorous tips/quotes and advice.  This quilt can be "themed" any way you choose!

Students of the class can choose between hand embroidery, machine embroidery or printing on fabric for their quotes.  During class, we will discuss the tricks and tips to each method.  This quilt is designed around a simple Turning Twenty basic quilt, so easy to cut and piece!  Students should be able to complete a great deal of the quilt during class.

Fabric/Supply List:

10 Grey & 10 Coral Fat Quarters (or a scrappy mix of your favorite colors that equal 20 fat quarters)
1 1/2 yard Cream (or White) background fabric
