What not to do

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.


  1. Kudos for trying! That's an interesting idea for quilting. Thanks for sharing. Hope the visit with DS's girlfriend goes well. :o) Happy Sunday!
