Welcome! My name is Heather Joy. My passion for being creative began earlier than I can remember. I love all things involved with home decor, vintage, fabric, and paper. Through blogging, I hope to inspire you to craft.
Last night was Portland Modern Quilt Guild, this year we decided to make quilted name tags to wear at each meeting. First, I looked all over the web for inspiration. I was strongly inspired by Fresh Lemons, and made mine similar to hers.
If you'd like to make your own, here is a peek into my own process:
I then layered it like a quilt. The top, batting, and a fabric. I quilted around the perimeter of the badge, then attached bias tape from Bolt as the binding.
To wear it, I sewed a pin back to the back of the badge. I really enjoyed this process, especially the embroidery! I haven't done much of it, I'm sure I'll be adding this to a few projects in the future.
I was inso much flattered as to be asked by two people if I did it on the machine or my hand. :) Thanks gals for making my day!
If you haven't checked out PMQG - do it! When I'm not blogging here, I'm blogging over there along with Petra about all things quilting and PMQG. I'm so thankful to be on the board this year and making so many great new friends.
