Thankful Wall Art

I saw this adorable quilted 'Thankful' framed project over at The Three Sweet Peas blog and knew I had to make one. I found an old oil painting in a great frame at an awesome rummage sale in Pittsburgh last year with my daughter. 
I spray painted the frame black. The original at The Three Sweet Peas was square and used a mat but since my frame was rectangle and I didn't want to spend a fortune on getting a mat cut, I just used white fabric as a border to mimic the mat. 


  I used fall colors of red, orange, and yellow. After I sewed the block together I fused it to a lightweight fusible batting and then did some quilting on it. I used my cricut machine to cut out the letters backwards and adhered them directly to the back of the glass. I cut a piece of cardboard for the back.  I totally love it!
Happy Thanksgiving all. I hope you are able to spend time with friends and loved onesk over the holiday and reflect on all the things you are grateful for!

Blessings,
