First off--don't you just love the name--and then just look at the cover!! The colors in this book are so amazingly happy that a smile was on my face the whole time I read it!!! Sherri picked just the right colors for each project. If you want to get your very own autographed copy from Sherri HERE.
The book can also be found on AMAZON.
There are also amazing giveaways, but that will come later...first let's get to the project I selected for the hop.
I started with these soft and cheerful colors from Island Batik's line called Ditty!!
Such pretty shapes all ready to sew!!!
Did some chain piecing on a blustery and snowy day in March!!
....just for fun!!!
All the pretty colors!! Sherri's directions were very clear with easy to cut pieces. I tend to be an AccuQuilt quilt cutting type gal--so that is what I used.
As my readers are well aware, I tend to be a procrastinator with most all of my projects!! Silhoutte to the rescue for cutting the letters!! I like to use batiks for letters when using the electronic cutting machine as they have a tighter weave so the cuts are nice and clean!!
Found this fun piece that I tried snow dyeing with last winter--great for the back!!
The neat thing about Sherri's book--Text It--is that she includes the whole alphabet for each font used in it!! So you can personalize each project with whatever works for you!!! I chose to add the & PRAY to my project.....
....and turn it into a wall hanging. I am planning on hanging it over a door in my sewing studio. Just the reminder I need!! Sherri's project in the book is a pillow--and it was super cute!! I just doubled the amount of X blocks, trimmed the word space down a bit and basically just sewed two pillow tops together to make the wall hanging!! I love it---thanks so much Sherri for the inspiration!!!
Now for some extra fun!! Aurifil has graciously donated 2 large spools of thread--color will vary from photo--to one of my readers.
Oh, but there is more, Martingale is offering a hard copy of this lovely book to one of my U.S. readers.
