🎬 Video: how to do lettering on quilts (say it with your sewing!)

Lettering on quiltsTake our *word* for it—you’re gonna love today’s new video!

Text It! author Sherri Noel is a whiz when it comes to adding words to quilts. In her fun book, she shares a variety of ways to add letters to projects, from baby, lap, and bed quilts to cute pillows. With her simple techniques, you can say anything, from “Happy Birthday!” to “I Love You” and any sentiment in between. The message is up to you—and with seven different alphabets to choose from, the sky’s the limit!

We recently sat down with Sherri to learn one technique she shares in Text It!—Bias-Strip Letter Appliqué. We thought the steps sounded easy enough, but when we saw how to do lettering on quilts using the technique, we realized that even a beginner could get great results. Take a look at Sherri’s method and see for yourself!
