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.

My first letters - advice please!

Please excuse the poor quality of the photo...the colors are darker and richer, but its snowing here and either the picture came out too light or too dark.
I'd love to know if this is even close to what you need, Tonya.  I made the 'A' into a little bug (if you can't tell).  I'm getting ready to start the humbug and will make the letters smaller, I think?

Should the background be the same for all letters? 

All comments welcome:))

No, backgrounds don't have to be the same.

how big are these letters?

About 14" tall before a border - is that too large? I'm working on a small 'humbug' now.

looking good Deborah, I am hoping to dig out my fabrics and play this weekend. cw

Tonya Ricucci said...

definitely not too big, D. I think it would be fun to have a much smaller "humbug" to go with it. That way you can feel the irritation with that loud bah.

I've finished making a load of letters for the quilt I'm working on, so hope to have a go at Bah Humbug in the next day or so. I can manage letters now, but some of you have come up with such creative designs. I'll have to get my thinking cap on.
