    My first word!

    I finally received my Word Play Quilts book yesterday. I want to make a Valentine's Day wall hanging with the words "Hugs and Kisses" on it. I made the word "hugs" tonight. What fun! I think these words could become addicting. I really like the wonky look of the words in the book. Mine are fairly straight, but as I make more, I'm really going to experiment with making them wonkier.

    I am so glad you got your book, and your excitement is infectious. That would be so cool to applique words on a quilt.
    I will have to look into that book, I have another one that is on my want list too, but some fabric had to come 1st.

      The words aren't appliqued, they are pieced together. It's a fun technique. You can really play with it.

                    This where I first got the inspiration. I ordered the book from Amazon. It's got quite a bit of tips and tricks. I love it, I'm going to copy the last pages and put them in a sheet protector--cause I'm afraid I'll wear it out. I can't wait to play with these. I love her basic rule in the book:
                    If it's not long, enough add more.
                    If it's too long, cut it off.

                      There's so much you can do with words. Sounds like an awesome book.
