I actually wanted to post something different but I forgot to take photos so I will get on that tonight.
Instead, I thought I would make everyone laugh with my first attempt at free-pieced letters a la Tonya at Lazy Gal Quilting. Don't blame her for how this looks! I have serious trouble with being wonky! Anyone who knows me well would be completely shocked (I hope) that I have trouble being freer with my piecing. It is something I want to work on because the next border on my guild's challenge quilt needs to incorporate letters or words and I want to put some seriously wonky words on it. I am completely open to ideas for what it should say. Here's the piece I am working on:
The border must be 3 inches finished. I am also adding another piece of vine to the left upper corner because I think it looks too unbalanced and I want something for my flowers and leaves to cling too. The new border doesn't have to go on all four sides so I am thinking of adding words to just the top and bottom or one side. What do Toucans say?
"Let's Party!!" OR "Listen to what Edna told me" OR "I'm CooCoo for Coco Puffs!"
Let me hear what you think.
Meanwhile, ponder this:
The only reason people get lost in thought
is because it's unfamiliar territory.
