Scrabble Rag Quilt

This will be my most favorite quilt for a very long time. Some close friends got married in October. I normally hate getting stuff for friends off their registries so I began to think of what I could do that was special for them. I started thinking about their life together and remembered he proposed on a scrabble board and my mind was set!

Off to the store I went!  I took the scrabble board with me and as you can see I picked up more of my beloved remnants!


Man this was a process!


Some of the letters!


Getting ready to sew the rows!


Starting to come together!


Ready to clip!
DONE!!!


Visit my Etsy store to purchase one for yourself or someone you love!

    1. Hey Zeedle! I am so happy and flattered you like the quilt so much. At the moment I would have to ask that you please don't put it up for sale on Etsy as I am planning on doing the same soon. Thank you so much for asking ahead of time!

    1. I'm so glad you like it! I used 6" blocks and fabric paint to paint the letters on. It was hard but so worth it!

    2. Ashley, do you use a stencil or just free-hand it? They look SO good. You are so creative!

  14. Loved your Scrabble board rag quilt so much that I had to make one for my niece for her wedding. I painted my letters with fabric paint, I think if i make another one I will try the fabric markers. It was a lot of work but I really enjoyed making it. Thanks for the cool idea.
