Graffiti Quilting Dream Strip Quilt
Graffiti Quilting on my Dream Strip Quilt
Graffiti quilting was the plan for this old old old unfinished object, UFO, quilt. The larger solid stripes were perfect to showcase designs and the printed stripes provided a great practice area for other ideas.
I used a facing technique to prepare the edges of all the letters before appliqueing them by machine. You can find more details about the technique which is featured in Hexagons Made Easy. Turns out the method is great for any shape!
Here’s a closer look at the quilting around the word “dream.”
The aquamarine shows up great on the navy blue fabric! It isn’t wildly distracting, but you can definitely see all the graffiti quilting lines.
The narrower borders of the quilt are filled with border designs. In the above picture you can see a small wishbone quilting design.
This quilt was so fun to finish! It isn’t my oldest UFO, but it was one I recently re-discovered.
