So, I keep thinking I should try making a quilt that looks like a crossword puzzle. That would be fun. There are lots of ideas out there, and it sounds like a fun challenge.
And, remember my post about the Word Play Quilts book? It's got lots of great ideas for making patchwork words. Not complicated. Just a little time-consuming. Lots of fun, though.
For a few weeks, I've been doing some brainstorming, graph-paper-jotting, and a bit of word-quilt-letter-sewing ... I'm thinking that probably a wallhanging would be a realistic start. So, now, I have to figure out how tall my letters would need to be to make it a reasonable size.
This crossword-puzzle-quilt letter A is about three inches tall:
IF this crossword puzzle quilt wallhanging idea works out, I'll try to post more about it. Probably in bits and pieces ... because IF it works out, it might become a Christmas gift. But, for now, this is all there is to see ... Hoping to share a few sneak peeks along the way ...
I'll be linking this post to
