Give me Liberty!

I finally got to play today! And I finally found time to try more of Tonya's letters! I created the word Liberty! Tommorow I'll show you a bit more of the quilt I"m working on. But for today - LIBERTY!

Oh the biggest challenge with these was I had to make it fit in a specific spot and I had never done lower case letters. It was easier when I could follow Tonya's tutorial for the letter. Thank goodness Tonya had drawn out what lower case letters for Liberty would look like so I could kind of mimic her drawing!

Thank You Tonya! I could never have done it without you!

Your letters look great! I too have been working on letters, some lowercase, but haven't tackled the idea of fitting them in a set space....

Hey, I'm with Finn - I don't want to hear that negativity either. I KNOW you can do it. And you did do it (and could have even without the extra bit of help). I have every confidence in you.

Liberty looks GREAT!
