Artzy Lynn Was Busy Yesterday!

This is my first Hebrew Letter done as quilted fabric!
I enlarged the small atc sized drawing to 8" X 10",
and then printed it onto a paper backed cotton page.
I used a free motion foot on my sewing machine to
thread paint the black around the color on the printed cotton, which was
sandwiched with batting and backing.
Perhaps enlarging the picture on your computer will show off the thread painting done
in all the black areas. Try it. The orange and blue areas puffed up nicely
from the stitching.
First idea...a success!This is the enlarged glossy print.
and another
and another
Twenty two or three Hebrew letters all started as 2 and half by 3 and half inch
drawings, enlarged to 8" x 10" glossy prints, which I will put together in a
book form for my grand kids
Hebrew Alphabet Book!
I can't wait until I see them on Sunday
and they can READ IT TO ME!!!!


  1. amazing! what a great idea...I must give that free motion sewing a go and a fabric alphabet book is a wonderful gift. You are an artist with thread!

  2. Lynn, this looks fantastic! Not that I'm surprised! You do beautiful work and what a fun idea!

  3. What a great idea to encourage your Grands. The quilted piece is great.

  4. I know I keep saying the same thing, but you blow me away!!!

    What a fantastic idea for a book. And I'm in love with the quilted letter :)

  5. Hi Lynniskynni, your hebrew letters are beautiful, and the colors in your quilted letter are gorgeuous. I like the black and gold combination.
    Those letters are so wavy, full of movement, beautiful.
    Have a great weekend,

  6. I'm always amazed when I visit your blog Lynn! I just don't know how you manage to pack so much into a day!! So creative - these letters look wonderful!

  7. These are great.
    I thought at first you were going to put the quilted letters together by sunday for your Grandkids.. then I reread glossy prints. I knew you were fast but not that fast. lol They will love it.
    Word verification is..'prize'.. and it is!!!

  8. These look fantastic. I can tell you are having fun making them.

  9. Stunning, Lynn! You are an amazing artist. Your grandchildren are in for a huge treat and what a lovely keepsake.

  10. How wonderful, Lynn!!! Just beautiful for the grand kids!!!!!

  11. I think Lynn could make a king size quilt, 3 sketchbook pages, cook a rib roast, put up 3 posts, (scheduled), free motion sew a wall hanging, and clean the house ALL before Sunday!
    Powerhouse person!
    And these letters are beautiful! Well done!

  12. Thank you all for your lovely comments on my Hebrew letters!
    I am going to bed tonight laughing at Babs list of things she thinks I could accomplish before tomorrow!
    All but the pot roast (I do not cook much and burn lots;) or clean house (house suffers when I am being creative!!!LOL) Thanks for the good night laugh!

  13. Spectacular Lynn...I'll bet their little faces will be all aglow! :)

  14. Wow, talk about productive and how special that your grandkids will love and share it with you.


Thanks for leaving your comments as I love hearing from you. Your words of encouragement are why I continue to draw!
