Playing with alphabets
Yesterday afternoon the fancy took me to do something completely different - I've been stitching hexagons over paper for England for the past 5 months and lots of hand applique too.
Anyway whilst browsing through the blogs I usually drop into now and again I rediscovered Tonya's lovely free pieced letters and thought I'd give them a try.
The above is the result of a good 3 to 4 hours stitching throughout yesterday evening.
This morning I couldn't sleep so got up around 7.45 am and worked on putting them together - here is the result
Not sure how I'll quilt this but quilte fancy just free motion quilting, writing the alphabet all over in lower case.
Now I have the germ of an idea to stitch a 'Liverpool FA Cup Winners' quilt for my little boy who worships the ground Steven Gerrard walks on.
I can envisage it in Red and White with some yellow which are the club colours with the names of the whole squad on a single bed sized quilt.
I'd better not tell him I've had the idea or else he'll be nagging the pants of me to get on with it.
