I really wanted to make a quilt to enter in the Century of Women's Progress exhibit, but I couldn't decide on one woman to focus on, so I went wide with the subject...very very wide.
I started out by making a rough sketch on my iPad in SketchesPro.
And since I had my new toy out and all ready to go I decided to try and use it to get words on the quilt surface that I wanted. I loaded up the Cricut with a sheet of Lutradur.
I used Lutradur instead of fusible backed fabric because I was initially thinking of painting the letters.
Here's all the words before I peeled them off. How do you like all those fonts? The Cricut software has quite a lot to choose from which was a nice thing to discover.
My quilt subject is all about the roles that women can have and how they've changed since we got the vote in this country.
I used Fabri-Tac glue to stick the letters to tulle netting which worked really well.
Here's how one of the words looks on the finished quilt. Once I find out whether the quilt is accepted I'll post more about it (sometime next week).
