Hello all -
We're working on the Christmas quilts for the nieces and nephews and I have a question on the quilting. I'd like to personalize them some more by writing/quilting a message in the border. Is there any reason why this wouldn't work? I was thinking I'd stitch in or near the ditch on the inside and outside, then put the message, and fill in the rest with shapes that are appropriate to the quilt. The message would be something like "Made with love for xxx by Aunt Kim and Uncle Darren --Christmas 2009." I haven't seen anything positive or negative on an idea like this. Will this work? Does anyone know of any pitfalls that I should avoid or have suggestions to make it work well?
