How Did She Come Up With The Design?
Ruth is very familiar with computers, to say the least! In our previous life-time she was VP of Development at Executive Insights, Inc. [our company]. So, she easily searched the web for pictures of children's books.
Sometimes the pictures were of the front and sometimes they were of the spine of the book. She sized the pictures and printed them on EQ Printables, which is the printable fabric that we use.
Next was a trip up to "Sweet Stitches Quilt Shop", in Chesterton, Indiana. There she found the wood-looking fabric.
Then came the craft and joyous part: cutting and piecing!
Guess where it was longarmed. Forever In Stitches, of course!
She also machine bound it. Usually she hand-stitches bindings. However, this binding was double and had to withstand a child and washing. So, machine binding was called for due to it's strength.
On Saturday, the 12th, it was presented to the Mom-to-be at the baby shower.
Well, now you know the rest of the story.
