I Almost Missed It!

Couldn't let this day pass without a shout-out to Tonya Ricucci on the publication of her first book, Word Play Quilts.



I'm proud to say that one of the few word blocks I've made ended up on the cover of the book.

I haven't made many other word blocks. Almost put my newest granddaughters' names on their baby quilts but ran into difficulties and opted out. I'm not saying I'll never make any more words out of fabric but for the time being I'm content to enjoy all the other wonderful quilts being made using Tonya's tips (many of which can be seen on the blogs you'll find here). Once this book gets into the hands of quilters there are going to be a LOT more quilts featuring words and sayings!

I LOVE that you got a word on the cover and especially this word! That's just so great. I'm not much of letter piecer, myself, but I have enjoyed trying. Unfortunately, every single time, Tonya ran one of her challenges, I was coming,going, or recuperating from a real life challenge with my parents in Alaska. Never even gave myself a chance to get anything in the book. But...like you, I SO enjoy seeing everyone else's work and am so filled with admiration for all of you who have! Congratulations and let the PLAY always be there for all of us!

How cool that your block is on the cover! It's a great word - I love how you did the A! - and it's a very good word to remember.

It's about quality, not quantity!

GOOD for you ... (my leap word is in the lower left corner ... woo hoo, we have blocks in the same quilt!)
