Playing with words

I gathered all my fabric with words on and cut into them, making 60° triangles.

No big plan.

No worrying about dark and light placement.

Just cutting and sewing.

As ever, with all my images, you can click on them for a closer view.




I tried to add some interest by cutting different sized triangles. And added in some of my small and precious Heather Ross Munki Munki stash, again, just to give the eye some different things to see.

 Some are 60° triangles made up of four smaller triangles, some are the regular size I chose and a few are larger to show the text off better.




I think I'll add a few more rows and then sandwich it together and start quilting.

Logic dictates that I should machine quilt this one with nice simple rows diagonally either side of the seams.



I am not going to follow logic.

I am going to hand-quilt this one.

I may be a while.

  1. Beautiful! I like your play on words - I have been hoarding the text fabric too but hadn't thought of splurging it all in one project - love that pink one! What is it please?

  4. Fabric with text on it is one of my favourite things. It would never have occurred to me to use pretty much only text fabric in a project. Very cool result though!

  8. It's wonderful! I can see why you want to hand quilt it, time to enjoy each of those bits of fabric up close.
