I found the project box, picked out fabric for the background and letters, and read Word Play Quilts to prepare for making names for my witches. This book is terrific, and I'm not saying that just because I made a word for the quilt that ended up on the cover! Which, by the way, was the first and last free-pieced word I have ever made (my word is SOAR). Tonya breaks down the letter-making process to easy steps using strips of different widths. She has two main guidelines: If it is too long, cut it off. If it is too short, add to it. You can see tutorials on her UnRuly Quilter blog. Now I just have to choose the names from my long list of favorites gathered over the past year! See more Design Walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.
