Here are the results of last night's work. There is no accident I stopped at "P." The upper case "Q" is really tricky, and I was getting tired.

No colors are repeated in the letters, except for the background. I have 26 different colors, and each letter is a different color.

The letters with the white background look really fresh and spring-y.
The letters with the black background look really avant-garde and arty.As you can see, my cat Millie is involved with the design process.I am planning on making this into a quilt version of a traditional "sampler" with all the letters, upper and lower case, and numbers. I plan to add my name and the date, and the name of the city where I live. I am also thinking about a house, since those are often depicted in samplers.

I have a feeling Millie might make an appearance as well.

Oh, I think Millie absolutely needs to be part of your "sampler!"
