The Proverbial Quilt is inspired by early "talking" quilts. These quilts often featured quotes from the Bible, or commemorated public events. My version is an amalgamation of proverbs and fortunes from cookies: "When we are flat on our backs/the only way to look is up/find relief from your cares/tomorrow is another day". The pattern includes the entire alphabet, so you can customize, personalize, editorialize or memorialize. You can even dispense advice, and then sleep on it! Long before I created this pattern, I made my first Proverbial Quilt by mprovising all my letters. During this workshop, I'll show you how fast and easy it is to create your letters this way. Come prepared with an idea of what you want to "say" with your finished project, and I'll get you started!
