New Direction

Nancy again.  Thanks for all the nice comments about my quilt.  Everyone has been so helpful.  
I thought about putting these letters on the quilt but I really like the suggestion of naming it New Direction so I may change my mind.
I see I have the a in necessary up side down - have to change that.
What about the quilting - are we supposed to hand quilt these?

Oh your letters are terrific!
Whatever words you end up with its going to really enhance the quilt.

You know Tonya...no rules do what inspires you...( or what you have time for :0)..) what to you see running down those great black diagonal spaces? Cables? Fans? Feathers? In the striped squares you could do fans...that was your original inspiration....
I look forward to seeing what you do.
Oh the possibilities!

Happy Sewing

Love your choice of words and letters. And I say, "quilt as desired".

The fans and letters look so good together, Nancy.. You might quilt lines down the middle of each strip, or 1/4" from the seam allowances. And then a quilt design with curves in the black. Whatever you do, I love your colors and liberation.

I love the irony and sense of humor in your word choices, "no words necessary" and yet, there they are! Great job piecing those letters.

Mine are being machine quilted (my hands will not allow me to hand quilt anything more than a 9x12 and not very often for even that size).

I like New Direction!!

Have fun no matter which way you go...
