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.

A finish and introduction.

I've never made a post!  My name is Manda, and I love Tonya's book. I also host a "Word Play" bee over on Flickr. I just finished an I Spy quilt and wanted to share!  I had originally planned to piece the words in the front of the quilt like in the airplane quilt in the book, but once I got them finished, this idea came to me for the backing.  This is an "action" photo. My kids wanted to snuggle under it ;)

Ada's I Spy- back

Yeah, once you get started with words, you don't want them on the BACK! You want them on the FRONT!
Great action shot! Great quilt!

3 cuties! 1 quilt and 2 babies! Oops, 4 - dolly is trying to hide!
I love making Tonya's letters, they are like chips and M&Ms - can't stop at one!

KQ Sue- Fancy Nancy must be camera shy.

Millie, I like to make my backings as wonderful as the fronts. I do have some great ideas for word quilts that would be just word quilts. Pinterest has really inspired me.

Lynne's right. Put them on the Front!

Great capture.
