Design Wall Monday

The vortex is still on the design wall, and progress is being made. The letters for the first word are constructed.
I love that the 'S' looks lighter (total seredipidity) and from far away that makes it look like the word is CRAP. I'm happily leaving it like that.
Then the spaces between the letters needed to be filled in with pieced sections. I think this is roughly how it will look.


But before I can sew everything together, the height of the letter sections need to be the same. I measured each one and decided that the letter blocks would be 8.5" tall, so the next step is to sew bits to the top or bottom of each letter and each spacer section to be that measurement. Once they are all the same height I can sew them together to add in this row. 
This is one of the best parts of making a quilt, when you're having fun AND you like how it's all coming together!!

  1. Are you going to let the letters "dance" or are you going to make them march in a straight line?
