My first thought was to do various sports letters to look somewhat like a crossword puzzle. Um, too many letters are repeats -- lots of balls involved. Plus when I went to the stash all the sports themed fabric I thought I had came down to one small piece of fabric that wouldn't fit the size I wanted to make the blocks. Toss that idea.
Next up was dog theme. Checked the stash and yep, I have dog themed fabrics. (The blues on the left, bottom and right came in the bag. Not big pieces and not much variety.) I can augment from the stash.
Ok. Decided that would work once I changed the four patches from all blue to blue and white. I could appliqué the letters on the white parts and get the results I had in my mind.
Except my brain continued to work overnight. I woke up this am and thought perhpaps I'll just put the words on the outside border. I was planning on using the light fabrics on the bag in the picture above for the letters. I even have an alphabet to use. Today I'll refigure the quilt so I can put letters on the border. Hum, maybe I could do a big quilting stitch and just stitch the words. More to consider...after I get the center done.
So the OMG is to get this top pieced. If I get it quilted and bound, all the better. It'll be displayed at the FCQ show in the spring and then donated to Project Linus.
Are you living in the frozen zone? The last two days the morning temp has been 0º. Yep, you read that right. Needless to say the studio is a great place to be right now. I keep the heat up and stay busy so I'm a happy camper. We did go out the last few mornings for our normal workouts at the community clubhouse.
Want to go swimming?
Do you live where the weather can change drastically in a few days?
I'm linking up with Elm Street Quilt's One Monthly Goal January link up.
Happy quilting all! Bonnie
