- Printing the design directly to fabric using an inkjet printer. (This was the method used in both my samples for the cover quilt.) I first pre-treated my fabric and then ironed it to a piece a freezer paper that could be run through the printer.
- Trace the poem using a pigma pen.
- Embroider the poem onto fabric.
This weeks video tutorial will be about creating a "handwritten" design for your quilt in Art and Stitch. There were a number of tips I came up with in the process that I would love to share with you.
I am also thinking that this could work for adding names to baby quilts. Where would you like to add "word art" to your quilt?
Love your Electric Quilt Private Coaching Program
The program will be formally released next week at Fall Quilt Market -- but I wanted to give my loyal blog readers and newsletter subscribers first shot at obtaining one of these limited number of spaces, including some Early Bird discounts if you sign up by October 31st.
Read more about the program here. (PS -- This could be tailored to Art and Stitch as well.)
