I have been surrounded by words the past few days. And loving it.
Because they are words that look like this:
Happy, positive, encouraging words. That’s right. I’ve started putting together the Fontastic quilt top!
The blocks are from lovely quilters all over the world who tested out my Just My Type patterns, then sent their test blocks to me to put together into a charity quilt. The alphabet patterns are listed in my Craftsy shop now – you know, in case you take it into your head to make your own word quilt .
Please don’t despair if you don’t see your block in this photo! I have extra blocks that I will be making into a smaller lap quilt. This is just the start! This quilt already measures around 55” x 70”.
I’m loving how this has come together. Lots of beautiful colours and piecing! Well done, lovely testers!
As you can see from the top of the picture, rain was imminent (which it has been for the past bazillion days) so apologies for the bad photos. But you get the idea.
I haven’t bothered trying to match all the seams. With 30+ different blocks and quilters involved in this grand plan, seams are all just slightly different. So why drive myself crazy trying to match them? Instead I just spread the blocks out and added in a few squares in solid white to break them up a bit.
Next up. Adding a border of Simply Colour. Ooh fun!
