Pieced Letter Quilts




I must confess, I have a weakness.... no, I don't mean the obvious (fabrics, my children, chocolate) but the weakness I want to confess to today is words.

Yup, words. As a former English Lit major, it's not too surprising that I love everything wordy, from a brilliantly worded sentence, a fabulous read all the way down to the fantastically wordy quilt.

What? What's that you say? You say you've never SEEN a wordy quilt? Well, I'm sure you have, but you just don't remember, or maybe realized that there was a sub-genre of quilts called wordy! Maybe there isn't a sub-genre, I probably am the first person to use this term.







The quilt pictured here is by artist Jill Ault, check out her website Fiber Art

So, for your viewing pleasure please check out the following links:





And why are there no pictures of my own work? Well, it's one of those skills I have not yet mastered. Tonya makes it look so easy and wonderful, but I'm still struggling. Most likely it's my own stringent ways that are the biggest stumbling block. Soon I'll have something of my own to post... soon...
