A group blog for working on UnRuly Quilting projects and most especially UnRuly Letters. What is UnRuly? Liberated, wonky, improvisational, mis-matched, points cut off FUN.

Bah done... onto Bug!

Hi everyone, I am Jennifer Dessert (pronounced like Desert).
This is my first post but not my first time participating in one of Tonya's fabulous challenges.I was lucky enough to be a part of "Cake" and I have made a few Unruly projects since then. Last night I decided it was time to jump in and attempt a Bah Humbug! Block. My first sketches are so bad I am too embarrassed to show you and boy... I sure had lofty ideas. It 'aint easy makin' bugs! I started with four fabrics, a bright red solid, limey green solid,a red calico and a dark green with light green dots.

My intention was to make the "h" have a buggy head but after making the Capital "B" I was too chicken to try. I may try again tonight on Humbug. I guess I have never made a capital B before...well I have now.

Not too shabby I think. Not too wonky either...hmmm. I need to learn to get "wonky wit it"! My block is 8 1/2"x 12 1/2", bigger than I wanted so I plan to make the Humbug smaller. A personal challenge ;0)
This morning I have this on my ironing board...
Can I do it? I think I can...I think I can. If not I can certainly try, try again! Have a UnRuly day!
