Use Your Words
Words in quilts have a long history, whether it’s just names, initials, dates or phrases. Most often the words have identified the maker(s) or been a collection of names within the quilt blocks as in friendship quilts. Those were often stamped, inked or appliqued. I will teach you how to piece your words using the method created by Tonya Ricucci in her book Word Play Quilts. This is indeed a playful and easy way to add words to your quilts as it is “liberated,” allowing you to modify your words – changing the height, size or setting to suit your quilt. Once you learn this method you may be tempted to add words to all your quilts!
