I'm gonna try to do a short post here, while dinner is cooking.
Well, I've started my letters/word for Lazy Gal Tonya's Halloween Noises quilt. Here is my first attempt. It's only the 2nd "W" I've ever made, and I was going for round/curvy. OK, there's a little curve there, but not really what I had envisioned.
So, time to cut into the "good" fabric and see what I can do. I thought this was pretty good when I did it. Then I saw the "cackle" that Rachael sent to Tonya. Oh, despair! This "W" looked pretty darn sad after that.
Yesterday didn't go as planned and I never made it into the quilt studio. That was probably a good thing. I got to think this over a little more.
Today I went in the quilt studio and looked at the "W" with new eyes, and thought "I can just modify this a bit to make it more curvy". I just cannot fathom how to do what Rachael did, so I have to do my own thing. Well, I think this one is OK. Mind you, these are just laying on top of the background fabric, not sewn together yet, but I think this is gonna work.
What do you think?? Are they curvy/roundish enough? How could I make them more curvy without going nuts? I'd love some feedback on these letters. (Just please, be kind)
Gotta go. . .time to finish dinner!
