Alphabet Art: A Textile Collage Book (letter Q)

Quilted Textile Page

There was a time when I had a quilt frame set up in my dining room instead of a dining table.  I once pieced and hand-quilted a queen sized quilt in less than four months.  My needle rocking had rhythm, and my stitches were between 9 and 11 per inch. I can’t imagine doing that now, but my love of quilting has not waned.   Now and then I piece a “quilt-a-month” kit I have collected, and if they were smaller I’d be using some of them in this textile book.

This little 12 X 12 inch quilt is one of two I made years ago and is a representation of a big quilt I made.   I think I was going to make pillows out of them and never did (imagine that!).  So I simply added the small word patches, making this the easiest and quickest page so far.  Six down, twenty to go.
