I have been thinking about how I am going to quilt words in the border of this quilt with red thread. My initial idea was to quilt around letters using the phrase "We are broken." Then to make the letter stand out I would quilt the rest of the border around the letters with lines. Then I thought about doing that and then using some subtle red paint and paint the letters after the quilting was done.
See these two ideas below.
Of these 2 ideas I am leaning toward the first one. Another idea I have not tried out yet is to just fill the borders with the words "We are broken" in script. A trial of that will have to wait till after the holidays.
