Make a Text appliqué pattern

I love adding text to my quilts. It can be anything – a word, a name, a quote. On small quilts I’ll use a variety of techniques, like on the technique sampler that I made for my book Gledesspredere which has 24 of them (tekst=text).

On bigger quilts I will usually appliqué my text using fusible web. Sometimes I’ll draw the letters freehand, but usually I use Word to create my pattern. I thought some of you could be interested in how I do that, so I have posted a step by step tutorial.

My version of Word is in Norwegian, but you’ll find the same options in your version. Click here to go to the tutorial.

Thanks for stopping by!
