The Zunker Wedding Quilt 2011

 This quilt was created for Tyler and Heidi Zunker's wedding gift from our group of college families: the FF.  Tyler is a high school history teacher, so I thought this bookshelf quilt would be appropriate.  The titles of the books are memories from all the camping trips our group has done - making it a history quilt!  You may not understand the one-liners used as titles, but be assured, they all hold great meaning to us. 
God bless your life together Heidi and Tyler!

I used this pattern from Quilts and More Magazine, 2010.
The Design is called: In The Stacks from Designers Chloe Anderson and Colleen Reale of
TOADUSEW CREATIVE CONCEPTS.  toadusew.com
 Freezer paper was ironed onto the wrong side of the fabric.  I created the phrases/images using Word Publisher program and printed it right through my home desktop printer.  There were layout issues and lots of planning, but I was very pleased with the results.  To set the ink into the fabric I peeled the freezer paper away after printing, and steam-set the fabric with a lot of heat.  I think the inks will last a long time.
