Gratitude Quilt

I finished my fourth word-of-the-year quilt! Gratitude was my word in 2012. I chose a pumpkin to represent my word because I always think of the harvest when I think of gratitude. Also, I realized that this is ABSOLUTELY the longest word I can choose or I will have to make my paper pieced letters even smaller (and that, my friends, is NOT happening!)

For the pumpkin, I used this tutorial that I found via Pinterest (don't you just love Pinterest?) posted on the Fort Worth Studio Blog (which I love!) The finished quilt is 18x20, just like the other word quilts I have made. I can't wait to hang them all together eventually! I have one more to make before 2016 and my new word arrive. It's my 2011 word, Trust. I am totally stumped on a picture for this one. Any thoughts?

I love your Gratitude mini. The colors are great together. Trust....Hmmmm, that is a tough one for a picture. Trust and faith go hand in hand. "I trust you and have faith that you are not going to let me down". Faith representing trust might be easier to come up with a symbol. Just spitballing here!!!!

"Gratitude" looks great..... Hands symbolise trust. Like when a child jumps into a pool and Mums hands are ready to catch them....

Gee, you are so productive . Do you ever not have a needle in your hand? The pumpkin looks wonderful and I love the fabrics in it.
