Judy Butcher shared with us a really neat EQ project she made on appliqué calligraphy. Here’s a little more about it from her blog:
“Before I got a computer with lots of fancy fonts I dabbled in Calligraphy. I wasn’t particularly good at it, but I have always loved the look of a page of beautiful writing. With a computer I put the fountain pens and assorted nibs and bottles of ink aside, and used a publishing program to produce fancy text on a page.
However, I still play with fancy letters, but now I am appliquéing letters onto quilts rather than putting beautiful writing on paper. This ’sampler’ is one of a series of smaller wall hangings I have designed, a couple of which I have made, experimenting with different fonts, and ‘page’ layouts. A couple of the fonts I have designed myself, and the ones on the computer have to be traced and modified to work as appliqué.”
Judy is also making the EQ file available to you:
