Letters...



Here's what I did today - one of the things, anyway. I've been making some words for something which is hush hush at the moment and Alex spied them and decided he needed me to make his name. He provided the border fabric from his stash, but he doesn't really have a lot of tonals - mostly larger novelty prints (being as he's a 6YO boy - nearly 7, as he frequently reminds me - this is perhaps not surprising) so we raided my fabric for the orange and blue. Not sure what it wants to be - a pillow perhaps? We'll see...

Love it ... but OMG did you work hard on that X.

How big is it? Could it become the cover for whatever an almost-7YO's equivalent of a journal would be? (sketchbook?)

The X is wonderful. Am I right in thinking one V and then some free piecing for the bottom?

How about a name plaque for his bedroom door?

Very cute. I'm not surprised that Alex wanted his name in letters. He seems very interested in fabric and sewing, considering that he is an almost 7 year old boy! Perhaps he will take up quilting in a few years. I think both the girls started at around age 8, didn't they?
