This was my first real attempt at Tonya's free style lettering. I had trouble with being "free". I'm afraid I'm just a little too anal. I had pieced all the letters into words and discovered that they were all very nicely lined up with the bottoms of all the letters nice and even. I had done this without even realizing it. So, rip them all apart and make sure that they did not line up. That was very difficult for me.
Then came the stained glass blocks. Tedious is an understatement! If you look closely, you can see that the side rows of blocks have a little bit of black leading -- they were just that much too short for the ends. I figure that once this is quilted and bound those bits of black will be covered up wtih binding -- black of course.
This was a real stretch for me, but, all in all, I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. I'll get it quilted this week and maybe it might get hung before next Sunday....well, that is if the cold that I'm currently fighting cooperates.
