Making a B

Brenda of Scraps and Strings has a big birthday coming up this spring and asked for pieced Bs. I have never pieced a letter before, but in the spirit of stretching my comfort zone I signed up and am now in the process of piecing my first B ever. I’m following the tutorial on her blog; no point in reinventing the wheel.

I keep my ironing board on the other side of the room so I have to get up every now and then, stretching my joints and loosening up. Usually I’m quite fond of this arrangement, but then again I don’t usually have to iron every 30 seconds. Great workout though.


  1. I like what I'm seeing. I guarantee you that pieced letters are addictive, because now you can write with fabric! thanks for the shout out!

  2. I wish I could just take the advice about "re-inventing the wheel". UGH...sigh...shoot! But, meee weee brain sometimes (WAY tooo many times!!) just gets carried away. =D

    Oh, I'm off to check out the pieced letter tute! Oh, sounds too fun to ignore!!


  3. That is the problem with piecing letters...too much exercise ;-)

  4. Did I just hear creaking joints? Wondered what that noise was....Good idea to keep the ironing board a few feet away. My sewing machine, cutting mat, and iron are just a turn of my chair away. Boy am I lazy!
