This project calls for a real design wall!
This project was inspired by this post at the Patchery Menagerie. I got my copy of Word Play Quilts as soon as it came out, and have the perfect quote picked out for my dream quilt, but I haven't managed to work up the confidence to cut into my stash of yellow and orange fabric.
A two color sampler doesn't sound quite so intimidating. And I love black and white alphabet samplers, like this cross stitched one I did a few years ago.
Lynne is doing her sampler in alphabetical order. I haven't done many pieced letters, so I'm following the order they're explained in the book. Not the best idea -- I finished most of the easy ones last night and now I'm a bit overwhelmed by the idea of the more complex ones.
Some of these letters definitely need to be redone, but I'm happy with the "A" and "K" that I did Sunday night. Those are keepers!
