What Do You Stand For?
This is a quilt I made quite a few years ago, when working with girls age 12-18 in our church. I came across it the other day while unpacking. (Nope. Not done unpacking yet. Not even close.)
Our theme for the year was "What Do You Stand For?"
Each girl designed a quilt with that theme. Most used appliqued images that had meaning to them. No two quilts were alike, and it was great to see them all hung up together at the end of the year.
Mine is all denim with words hand embroidered on squares that I then blanket-stitched to each block.
It was so thick once I was done that I just tied it at the corners of each appliqued piece and on the corners of each larger block. All of the color variation is just different shades of blue denim.
