Changing 'm' to 'mmmm'

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.

You have really been busy working on the letters for the Halloween quilt....and your Linus project!

I love those irises! The variation in purple is so pretty. Thanks for sharing.

THUMP is looking good! I like where you are going with it...

For the M, why not try an inverted U, like you have drawn, with a notch out of the top, and then a middle leg?

To me , the T looks like a big hammer, and it's just perfect!

I've made an M making a capital "E" and turning it on side...

I love your irises. My across the street neighbor used to have them. I have always wanted to try them.

Your thump is going to look great! I like the idea about the "E" turned on it's side. =(^_^)=

Hi Cheryl, what a gorgeous iris! I miss mine back at the house this time of year. Luckily many of you gals who still have them post pictures and I get to enjoy them that way.
I'd be of no help with the M, sorry. Have a great weekend. Hugs, Finn

The T and the P are wonderful.

I like the first M. It looks kinda sweet with it's short, fat legs and shouldn't be that difficult to do.

I have a definite "thing" about M's and W's. Must get round to getting rid of the "thing". Practice, practice and more practice.

I hadn't thought of it til Lynne mentioned it, but yes that t does look like a hammer. the p too. those are awesome. I really really like how you've sketched it out on the first line below the word.

good letter ideas-playing around with different M looks- they all have charm. good job kitting up your Linus projects.

Libby said...

I have no ideas about your "m" situation, but I like the direction you are going!

I like the first M best - the way it plays with the other letters in THUMP . . .

Those irises remind me of a neighbor's yard when we lived in northern Indiana - she had 100s of them - gorgeous!

Have a great weekend!

I just struggled with the "w" on my quilt. It's fun and a challenge.

Your irises are gorgeous. My you have been busy. Look at all the linus stuff you have put together. I haven't made many letters. Good idea to audition on the graph paper.
