Gentle Reminder

I recently hung a quilt in my kitchen area.
 
Just a GENTLE reminder.

When MOM cooks you dinner...
she wants you to EAT it!
 
Normally it's a GENTLE reminder.
Once in a while I need to add
VOLUME and an exclamation point!!!
LOL!!!
 
I had LOTS of fun making this quilt.
It began with an old white sheet.

Here are my tools:
*spray bottle with water
*acrylic paint (cheap paint from walmart)
*foam brush
*plastic bag under the fabric to protect table.
*paint palette (an old take home container)
*and the fabric

Painting fabric is easy.
For LESS defined lines
the fabric needs to be wet.

I Put some paint on my brush....
 

And took the PLUNGE!
 

The sea foam sponge adds some texture.

Here's my work area.....
Outside on the patio.
:)
 

After the fabric dried
I added silverware and letters with iron-on fabric adhesive
some big stitches by hand
and BEADS!
 
The beads were collected
off of one of my older girls blouses
she was giving away!
;)
Never underestimate
the value of GIVEaways!!!

 
I bet YOU have some ideas about
GENTLE reminders at your house too.
 
What would YOU make??
What would YOU say???

Just noticed!
This is my 1,000th post!
Whoa!
That's a LOT of talking.
That's LOT of quilting.
AND.....
A LOT of listening by YOU!
Thank you dear friends!
