My First Word

I finally finished the word "Christmas" I did alot of seam ripping along with the sewing.It takes a little getting used to as to what section connects with the other to create the letter.I also had a hard time getting my letters somewhat near the same sizePhotobucket
I may take off the "a" and the "s" and straighten them up some,then add a border and quilt it.I am so excited to finally finish it!! I was laso working on the word LOVE.with all the reds I have left from the Christmas quilt.

Great letters. It does take a bit of practice, but it is so worth it. Just think of all the things you have to say!

Your letters are terrific! DO NOT RIP THEM APART! They are joyous and happy! Yeah, getting them all the same size... that's tricky, but your wonky letters are full of joy. I'd rather have the energy that radiates from fun letters than have them all lined up in neat rows. (yes, I did just say this...)

Glad you didn't take apart your letters - they look GREAT! And your M is fabulous. Congrats on your first word . . . but be warned, it is addictive. ;)

That is so cool! I think it turned out wonderfully!
I asked Santa for Tonya's book for Christmas, so I am looking forward to trying this out for myself in the new year.
