Scrappy Saturday - Pink

If you're looking for the quilt auction report, please come visit tomorrow...I haven't even had a nap or downloaded my pictures yet!
Today is the last Saturday in May for the pink Rainbow Challenge. I was able to make 2 words this week using the letter patterns from Word Play Quilts for my Virtues Quilt. Thanks again to LeeAnn for the inspiration for this project!


My first pink word was only 5 letters and was made with scraps from this quilt.
"Trust" was quick and easy to make. If only the virtue was as easy to build ..."Trust is having faith in someone or something. It is a positive attitude about life. You are confident that the right thing will happen without you trying to control it or make it happen."


The second word I picked to sew is joyfulness:
"Joyfulness is an inner sense of peace and happiness. You appreciate the gifts each day brings."
This is a generally an easier word for me in my life, but to sew it was quite challenging and used almost 2 fat quarters!


Here are my first 4 words together... 2 from the purple month and 2 from the pink month.


It really tickles me that I spelled 'Joyfulness' wrong! I can't decide if I want to change it or not! Would you?

I kind of like the misspelling! Makes people wonder if you did it on purpose! :)

Andrea said...

I wouldn't change it either - it looks great as it is and will make people wonder if their own spelling of the word is right - lol !

I don't think I'd change it, it adds character. Great words by the way.

I wouldn't change it either. I'm not the greatest speller which is one reason I love spell check....and the dictionary and this would just remind me of that little thing about myself.

Love it! I want to try this technique sometime. Leave it...you are full of joy, are you not?

Love your words so far. Unless the misspelling is going to bug you personally (and it doesn't sound like it will), I'd leave it as a 'quirk' :)

Great idea for your ongoing color project!

Oh, dear. I would change it, but I spell for a living so a wrongly spelled word in my quilt would bug me! But you don't have to if you like that quirk in yours :)

Love those words! Makes me want to dig out my book and try it! I wouldn't change the misspelled one either.

These are wonderfull! I love the "fullness" in the joyfullness. I wouldn't change it. I have missed these on the unruly blog. Are you posting them there?
