Can you count how many quilts you’ve made? Do you remember them all? Since this project is about telling your quilting story, why not commemorate your quilting accomplishments on your Quilt Story quilt?
Try these fun ideas or think of a special way to acknowledge the number of quilts you’ve made in your quilting journey:
- Add a button to your quilt for every quilt you’ve made. This idea is great for those who haven’t made so many quilts that the entire quilt will be covered in buttons!
- Add a bead to your quilt for every quilt you’ve made. This idea is great for those whose number of quilts numbers in the hundreds.
- Embroider a french knot on your quilt for every quilt you’ve made. This idea makes it very easy to add more knots as you make more quilts.
So how many quilts have you made? Let us know in the comments below.
