Choosing thread to quilt with...
I chose the lighter one (on left) because it wasn't as noticeable on the white areas.
I quilted a wiggly grid every 3rd row.
I marked these with a marker on the extra batting.
The binding was sewn to the BACK of the quilt,
then flipped to the front and secured with a wiggly stitch.
This is "The Love Project" finished!
It measures 22" x 36".
This is from a cross stitch pattern designed by Tiny Modernist.
I made it for my son, Earl, and his adorable fiancé, Katie.
Hidden in this quilt are:10 love bugs, 2 HUGS & KISSES squares, 2 I LOVE YOU squares, 1 cat, 4 "Whos" from Whoville, 2 clowns, 2 odd turtles, 2 lambs, 2 owls, 2 dogs, 2 E heart K, 1 K heart E, 1 "Scary" mouse, 1 O's bird, 1 hen, 1 teapot, 1 BEER, 1 EARL, 1 KATIE, 1 wedding date, 1 diamond ring, 1 FREE square, plus lots and lots of happy faces, hearts and LOVE.
Can you find them all? (Katie likes puzzles.)
There is some overlap in the following photos to make sure it all shows. Enjoy!
Earl and Katie, I love you!
