Word Play Quilts

I was reading Lynne’s blog today.  She mentions making a four letter word for Tonya awhile back and it made it onto the cover of Tonya’s new book, Word Play Quilts.  I, too, made a word for Tonya:

OMG, it’s on the cover too!!!!  Top right, see it??  Woo hoo, now I -have- to get Tonya’s book although that was never in doubt 😉  Lynne has used letters in her quilts a lot and they are terrific.  She’s an artist and, boy, does it show in her work……I’m not surprised at all that Lynne may have a quilt pictured in Tonya’s new book.


I bit the bullet last night and finished trimming up the rest of the half square triangles, whew!  I tried holding the ruler with my left hand in a different position but it was pretty sore when I was done…..not sore enough to make me regret doing it though 😉  I pinned up all the pieces and started sewing.  Don’t the finished pinwheels look pretty all lined up?  Woo Hoo…..the end is in sight 🙂

And you knew I had to insert the leftover half hexies on the Pop Beads backing, right? Much better 🙂

The LS from Darlene (the beautiful flower print from my July 6th post) has proved disastrous for my stash…..the “Wake the Dead”  line is no longer available from Andover but I found two sources that still had some.  Uh Oh!

But I had too…..Sandy commented this fabric would be great for a stacked 4-patch and I agree!  🙂   Guess my next stash report will tell how much I was able to get……..when I get around to it, hehehe.
