Blast from the Past 4: Mini Graffiti Quilt

A smol Blast from the Past today! I was invited to a friends’ wedding back in August 2018, and although they didn’t particularly have a gift list I thought it would be nice to do something a little personal. Having seen graffiti-style quilts floating about, I thought it would be really fun to make a small wall hanging with their initials, surrounded by bright FMQ designs.

I found a fun (and chunky!) font that I liked, traced it onto freezer paper, and used it as a guide to block out areas of my quilt top for the quilting. The quilting went quite quickly, although I slightly wish I’d done more quilting in navy-blue thread around the coloured region. I’m still really pleased with how it came out, even the back looked pretty cool:

I love this effect and would definitely do something like this again in the future! FMQ doodling like this doesn’t come very easily to me, but I’ve always felt that the best way to improve at something is to keep doing it!
