I’m signing up for Allie’s Christmas Club. The idea is to make a gift every month this year instead of waiting until November or December. Since I’ll be working on wedding stuff over the summer, I thought this was a great way for me to get a start on gift making. You can participate all year, or for just a few months, so it’s very flexible.
The idea for the crossword puzzle quilt has been in the back of my mind for some time, and I finally sat down and worked out a design for my niece, Jennifer, and her family. The font is “Bowl O Rama” which is available as a free download here. I liked the simplicity of the letters (for ease of applique) and the circle background (to add additional color). Normally I don’t design quilts on my computer, but this time it worked well since I could easily make changes to the colors. I am anxious to get started, and I think this is going to be a lot of fun to make.
Update: I ended up changing the colors a bit. Click here to see the completed quilt.
