Shaky Handwriting

I've decided against adding any words or letters to the top from yesterday. I'd like to use a dark purple binding to frame it, but I don't have enough fabric left, so I might let the project marinate for a little while before finishing it up.

Looking around at the Liberated Amish Get Together site, I was inspired to get back to a project I started in another one of Tonya's online events back in September 2007! I'm making a quilt for myself (for once) with place names of all the places I've lived. It's a long list! After finishing up all the short ones, I'm trying to move onto the 10+ letter places without making them so large that they dwarf the others. My 'handwriting' was a little shaky with the first one after such a long break, but I'm quite satisfied with the next one. As always, thanks to Tonya for her tutorial!

It sounds as if this could be as big as Tonya' Slither Eek Boo quilt!

Wonderful letters. Keep going.

LOVE those letters - I tried in one time, not bad, not so great either. Mine were too large, but it was a start! Thanks for more inspiration!
