ONE WORD WEDNESDAY

I bought myself yet another book. I've been quite intrigued by all the wordy quilts I have seen on flickr, so I decided to try piecing some.


So........todays post is brought to you by the word --





and the letters --


and



GUESS WHAT? I entered two of my quilts in the Festival of Hexagons over at a.squared.w        and I made the top 10!
 You can click here, and have a look at the entries. If you feel like voting, that would be very nice of you.  Even if I come in dead last, I still made the top 10  : )

Thanks and happy stitching.

Lovely letters...I see words in your future!

Great hexi quilt.

Patti said...

Congrats on your top ten! Just trying a hexi would be a win for me! Love your text letters! I may have to look for the book too!

Melissa said...

Gosh, your letters look so perfect!! I just did a couple word blocks for a bee, and I just kinda free-pieced them. I borrowed Word Play to use it, but just had fun free-piecing. But yours look SO much better than mine! :) Great job!

Sarah said...

I voted for you!

Teresa in Music City said...

Voted! Your quilt is wonderful :*) I've been tempted to play with words a time or two, but never seem to get the time to actually do it. You're doing a great job with them!
