NUMB3RS

I finally finished the numbers for my Alphabet Sampler Quilt. When I got the fabrics for this quilt, I deliberately selected 26 different colored batiks, and made each letter of the alphabet a different fabric/color. When I was making the letters, I didn't want a "rainbow", or "color wheel" effect, but for the numbers, I did.

By the way, the title of this blog, "NUMB3RS" is a leet version of the word "numbers." For information about leet, check the Wikipedia entry. Can you tell I have a job as a geek?

By the way, the Wikipedia entry for needlework samplers is interesting.

And yes, I watch the tv show, NUMB3RS, faithfully. It's my second favorite TV show after the original CSI.

I believe it is also the name of a very geeky television show - one that my math-loving husband quite likes :)
