Day-a-month with Angie Hughes - 2

We were asked to produce a sampler of the stitches we had been practicing, preferring to have items that are usable rather than items for an already bulging sketchbook, I decided to use silk and create a cushion which will fit with my sister's colour scheme. She gets alot of the small try-outs in the form of cushions!
Writing on quilts is a skill I really want to improve, as I find the idea of including words and phrases with quilts really exiting.
The pictures show what I've done with this crop of samples.


  1. Love the work you're doing. I've started to 'write' on quilts too - it's great fun.

  2. Brilliant samples and what a good way to use them.
