It's Better To Be Queen Appliqué Quilt

Thought I would share a new wall hanging created using our new Chevron Monogram Appliqué Embroidery Collection.

Do you like it? Wondering if this would be a good project for my 2015 Embroidery & Embellishing Conference? 

I did a little editing in the center (BUT) and removed the scrolls behind the letter "U" and then removed portions of the scrolls behind the letter "B & T".

A simple quilt with a fun message. Even my husband likes it. By the way Marv Yoder, my husband, took this awesome photo in our back yard. He is the in-house resident genius when it comes to photography.

So simple to make. Start with large blocks of fabric bigger than your 300mm x 200mm hoop. Arrange the letters in a software program such as Floriani Total Control Pro.  Next use an iron on tear away stabilizer such as Heat n Sta and embroider the designs.  Cut the blocks to whatever size you want, just make sure you cut all three embroidery blocks the same size.  Cut 1.5" sashing strips (that's the wild Partridge Family look-a-like fabric) and then add 4" borders.  Add batting, a backing and bind.  Then the infamous quilt as desired and you are all done.

How about using this idea to make quilted pillow shams for your bed. Groovy, right?
