This is my Four Letter Word for Tonya (http://lazygalquilting.blogspot.com/). She is collecting words of JOY/HOPE that are in a 6.5" x 12.5" brick. I first got out my graph paper and plotted it out, then as I started cutting and sewing I made some changes. I had the idea that Tonya wanted block letters, not the craziest.
Here is a closeup of the background fabric.
When that was all done, I felt empowered to make My Name for Tonya. She requested these several months ago. This one I felt I could make any way I wanted. "Make it simple" was my thought.
HA! My name also has four letters!
After all that, I had some little snips and sewn together pieces, so I made letters of them. "N" and then "M", and then "E". Could I make a word with those letters? I needed a fourth letter for Tonya's challenge, but what should it be?
So these are both going to Tonya as soon as I find out her address.
