America the Beautiful

I've been told that as you start quilting more and more that the quilts will start speaking to you and telling you how they should be quilted.  Well I don't know if I am there or not, however, yesterday as I started quilting this quilt, not sure what I wanted to do I started getting these Ideas.  I knew I wanted to do stars and so I practiced them then started in.  But all the sudden I had this urge to use words.  I'm not sure if  I've free motioned words before.  Oh well it's what was calling to me - so I'm giving it a try.  I am still in the beginning stages so not all my loops are smooth, but I like what I did.  

It's hard to see but if you zoom in you can see the words.  

So I'll be working on it a little more today - and I'll see what I come up with.  
Have a great day!   

PS  I'm not always good about leaving comments either - but if you can say Hi and let me know you were here.  :)

  1. I agree that a quilt can tell me what to quilt on it. But, sometimes, they speak very softly...or sometimes, its just in short statements, one step at a time. But, they have a way of making me unhappy if I do something other than what they want. Be well. I think your quilt will be great with writing in it. Lane
