From Text It!

From clever catchphrases to sayings that are good for the soul, Text It! will help you choose just the right words to convey your thoughts in fabric—as we quilters love to do.

We’re so pleased to introduce Sherri to you today as our guest writer. We’re hanging on her every word! 😄


Sherri NoelI grew up in New England, the youngest of four children. My mother wasn’t a quilter, but lucky for me, we did have a sewing machine in our home. I was also fortunate enough to have a presence of both of my industrious grandmothers in my life; painting, sewing, and knitting were collectively their creative passions.

I didn’t realize until later in life how much creativity surrounded me in my youth or how my family influenced me. Not only in their creative endeavors, but in their loving and fun, cheeky ways. That’s why my designs almost always center on my love of family, silliness, or positive persuasion.

Bee Happy quilt

My own quilting endeavors began in college. I had friends that were sewing and it became a creative outlet and a way to express myself. One day I realized that each quilt I made had an intention or a message for the recipient. I didn’t sew only for fun; it was also my way of expressing myself and my love for the recipient. While I stitched away, I would focus on the person who would receive the quilt with a message I wanted to convey—sometimes loving, sometimes silly, but always with a positive spin.

Counting Sheep quilt

While I had lots of fun making all the projects in Text It!, I do have my favorites. The Freedom quilt probably holds the most meaning to me.

Freedom quilt

A fellow quilter, Tara Miller of Quilt District, sent me her thoughts on the Freedom quilt: “The Freedom quilt is symbolic of my new direction. Freedom from fear, freedom from self-doubt, freedom from complacency, freedom to make choices for change. Great things are happening and I’m walking into them free.”

I can’t wait to share Tara’s Freedom project with you, along with all the projects remade by some of your favorite quilters! Get a copy of Text It! and gather your silly sayings and your powerful messages. Mark your calendars and get ready to share your creativity. I’ll be hosting a fun blog hop that kicks off March 4 at my website, Rebecca Mae Designs.

    —Kathy H on February 13, 2019
  • The first thing that comes to mind for me is a quilt for my now at college son — I’d make him a quilt with the sayings/words/chants from his school. Gig ‘Em! I’d probably practice with a "BTHO" finals tote bag, wall hanging, something-or-other to cheer him up at the end of this first semester of his.

    I’d just keep going from there, though; these are great ideas! And like Rebecca, all my quilts have messages in them….now I can help make that message more visible/obvious!

    —Tamara Isaacs-Smith on February 13, 2019

  • NAMES!! I have this book on my wish list.

    Carol DeLater on February 13, 2019

    —Amy Cofer on February 13, 2019
  • I’ve never done text on a quilt, but I think the first things I would put would be "Love" and "Family" because that is what is important to me and my children and grandchildren. Next would come "Freedom" for the military men in my family. Boy, I’m going to be busy!

    —Karen Christensen on February 13, 2019
  • REJOICE!

    —MS Barb on February 13, 2019

    —Susan G on February 13, 2019
  • Love the lyrics to Wonderful World…I would definitely choose a phrase from that great song. This book looks amazing!!

  • “Get her done!”

    —Robin on February 13, 2019
  • When our first baby was stillborn, my father-in-law sent flowers with the message, "Have courage." That was 40 years ago, but that phrase still resonates with me, especially when I give thanks for our two healthy sons. I make lap quilts for the Cancer Agency, for patients who are chilled when having chemo, and I write that message, "Have courage" on the label for each quilt. If I received this book, that’s the phrase I would write on quilts.

    I’m so sorry for your loss, Carol – what a wonderful message to share with others. –Jenny

    —Carol on February 13, 2019
  • "Thrive" would be the word I would choose. It’s my word for 2019!

    —pam on February 13, 2019
  • A quilt is a wonderful gift, but what a wonderful way to express your feelings in words! I put scripture on all my quilts by using cursive in my quilting, but you can’t see it until you look closely. Adding applique words will add just another special touch of love. We’ve been waiting for a long time for a grandchild and we have a granddaughter coming in July. I would do one that says "Welcome to our world!"

    —Virgie Viverette on February 13, 2019

    Diane Kimber on February 13, 2019
  • I would write “Proud of my Marine” I’m making a quilt for my son who just graduated from Marine Boot Camp on January 11th. That would make it more special. And would probably add a few more encourageing words to it also

    —Cheryl Hays on February 13, 2019
