Alphabet Quiltie - "X" marks the spot


This is my "X" quiltie for the alphabet quiltie swap on the Yahoo Group Fabric in Altered Art 2.  We only have two more to go.  We began two years ago next month.  It has been fun.  I plan to make a little book with all my quilties.

I decided to use the theme - X marks the spot for my X quiltie.  I downloaded the treasure map.  I used Photo shop to add the words and then printed it on fabric.  I  added stitching with red embroidery floss and embellished with two coins and a lock from a little vintage cedar chest. 

I have been out of town for a few weeks but will continue to share previous alphabet quilties later this week.

I wondered where you've been. Of course, blogger has had its own issues so commenting has been a problem. :/ I'm always amazed at your quilting talent. Wonderful! Happy day. Tammy
