Free Pieced Letters


Here is my first attempt at free piecing letters. I got the inspiration from Lazy Gal Other stuff, I free piece all the time. I mean, I free pieced before I knew it was free piecing, if you know what I mean. I raided the scrap bucket for red and green, for the snowball quilt. Then I started folding fabric, and then I needed a cutter blade, and then, well, I went to the quilt store. Ahem. I seem to have slipped and swiped my card on the way down. Two yards of a really cool-ie-o red rose print. Ah, well, back on track with budget recovery month.

It seems that the green letters don’t show up as well as I would like, but I’m thinking of yellow fabric paint. That would be a good thing to do before I go to bed tonight- it will be perfectly dry by the time I get home from work.

  1. That’s really nice, I like the snowball quilt, too.Color theory–in general, warm colors advance, cool colors retreat. Light/dark contrast plays a part, too. I got slapped by that on oddball stranded socks–I only had darks and even when the colors seemed like a good contrast, they didn’t have enough light/dark contrast. Had to go out and buy some lights.
