I'm linking up with Craft Buds to share my craft book project.

Craft Book Month at Craft Buds

Earlier this year it was our 5th wedding anniversary. As a surprise for my husband I made him this 'Johnny Cash quilt' with the lyrics of our wedding song on it.

I had started this quilt thinking I could just improv the letters but since I'd not been quilting long it was harder than I expected and each letter was taking me ages (I think I made 3!). After a little hunting around I discovered 'Word Play Quilts' by Tonya Ricucci and it all finally made sense:

I love her philosophy of unruly quilting and the great way she goes through the different ways of making letters and the fab projects she shows in the book.

Happily my husband loved it but to be honest it's on the small side so it now resides in my daughter's room and I have an excuse to make more quilts ;)
