Everything is awesome
I wanted my daughter to great each day with a strong encouraging word quilt so I selected Awesome!
This wall hanging measures roughly 30'' square and I used scraps of Moda Fig Tree to surround the awesome letters.
To quilt, I did FMQ loops all over the print fabric and outlined the letters. I though about doing some echo quilting inside each letter, maybe even by hand, but the letters just pop without the extra quilting so I left it alone.
My daughter loves her quilt and I hung it right over her bed. I used an enlarged version of my chunky alphabet pattern for the letters. The rest of it just went together, making it up as I went along.
This was the last Christmas finish for 2016. I put the final stitches in the binding about 6pm Christmas Eve.
I'll be linking up my finish with Main Crush Monday's, Sew Cute Tuesdays, Freemotion by the River, WIP Wednesday's, Let's Bee Social, Midweek Makers. Fabric Frenzy Friday, TGIFF, Finish it Up Friday and Finished or Not Friday.
Have a wonderful day! Patty
