Warm-Up Quilt

Sharon from Indigo Threads checking in! Here's my "warm-up" quilt top. . . it's a finished flimsy now. It's 21 inches by 23 inches, so not very big. I finally got my word done....whew! The hard part was that the letters came out bigger than I thought they would, and I had already done the other borders to 3 inches. That top border is 5 inches, due to the size of the letters. Still having some problems with that. It seems to be hard for me to make a small 'S'. And somehow, that 'E' was supposed to be lower-case and I got confused at a critical juncture. But I decided that I like it, and so I left it.

So, frankly, I've been stalling on doing the 9-Patches for the quilt I'm supposed to be making, and this was my excuse. Now that it's done, I have to get into the quilt studio and just do those 9-patches! Everyone on here is doing inspiring things, so when I get stuck, I come here and scroll through all the posts. Really, I'm having fun doing this and I think I know better what I'll be aiming for. Thanks for all the inspiration and encouragement!

Nicely done! I was just looking at some quilts with words/letters, and noticing the mix of upper and lower case. It's a great look, I think. My mantra when quilting is, "I meant to do it that way." A mistake is not a "mistake," it's a "design choice."

you did great! and these letters are already smaller than the first Woooo you did! the more you do the letters, the easier it gets. I like the different borders, who cares the top one is wider.

I haven't attempted any letters yet, it's the next part, but I want to have a few hours to really work at the process. Yours is fabulous. I like the stars and brights,
