Here is a picture of my first attempt at word play using Tonya Ricucci's book, Word Play Quilts. What a fun book. The word is "bebe" which is how DGD pronounces baby. I didn't "get" that the spacers were supposed to be the same fabric as the back ground - hence the dark green E in the middle of the word. I would also use the doted fabric for the letters and the plain for the background next time for a better effect.
Even though this was not a success it was so much fun. What a great way to use left over bits of fabric. I am definitely going to do this again! The ideas are coming fast and furiously.
But I can't play all day. In addition to all the regular chores of a working family, I have curtains to make. DS is bringing home a girl friend and we are using this visit as the push to do some much needed indoor sprucing up.
