Rememberall

Here's it is:


I found it quite a challenge to get it all pieced according to my vision. I put a sleeve on it--the first time I've ever done that. I am happy to have a completed project--whew. It is labeled "Rememberall" as that is what I wish it to do for me. ;-)

Thank you, Tonya, for the opportunity to expand my repertoire and thank you to all for your warm support! I look forward to seeing y'all's progress as your quilts grow & grow.

It looks wonderful Betsy, I love the quilted fans and especially the embroidered words.

marvelous, Betsy. You did a great job! I love the extra words you embroidered in - wonderful touch. Did you do the embroidery through all the layers of the quilt, or before you sandwiched? Next time you piece from your own imagination it will be even easier.

I completely understand what you said about it being harder to put together than to see in your head!

Love the concept and the name is perfect!

Congrats!

Thank you!

I did the embroidery before I sandwiched. I thought I was going to try to use a few different stitches, but kind of went mindless on it & did every word in outline. :-) I needed a rememberall to make this rememberall.

The embroidered words add such a nice touch! The give a nice contrast to the quilted words. Wow! Beautiful finish! Congrats!

It's a sweet dear quilt. I really like the combination of the words that are embroidered and pieced, and the baptist fan quilting keeps the eye moving!
