Hi all - this is my first post here on this blog, so be patient with me! I have been dabbling with the unruly letters since I got the book in December, and finally have a few pieces to show for it. I am having the best time!
I have long been a fan of liberated quilts, string quilts, and other fun outside-the-box stuff, but recently I found I was sewing less and less, and zoning out in front of the TV more and more. This definitely has my quilt making juices flowing once again! I have even been sewing in the morning before work, and late in the evening, and it's been a while since I felt that psyched about any project!
This is the first piece I did, once I decided to jump in -- an alphabet sampler. I did exactly what Tonya says not to do, I worked through the whole alphabet starting with A. Now that it's done, there are definitely things I would change, but my original plan was to use whatever I sewed and then see what I came up with. I can sort of see where I finally hit my stride(somewhere around"m") !
In the next post, I'll show you what I did over the long holiday weekend!
