M's and W's are not so easy. No, indeed. I knew that when I chose THUMP for Tonya's Halloween quilt, but I am determined to make a decent M, one that will make me hummmm with delight instead of shouting "eek!" (or even "*&#^$#!!")
My letters are supposed to have very fat and very thin parts, which I thought would emphasize the heaviness of THUMP. I sketched the word to get relative proportions and auditioned a bunch of M's. At this point I think I will do it the way Tonya suggests in her tutorial instead of using any of the ones in the picture. Any ideas for an M?
Did a ton of Linus stuff recently. Things look so compact in their little bags, but those represent hours of cutting, finding fabrics, piecing, etc.
And finally, gorgeous purple! Our yard has so many irises blooming now. I love the rich color and know it will just last a little longer, so I bought a hanging basket of red, white, and purple pansies to enjoy until fall.
