Daft Jumping Zebras

The phrase "how quickly daft jumping zebras vex" got stuck in my head. I liked the idea of the black and white zebras. How, I wondered, could I use only black-and-white fabrics for the letters, yet not lose them against a background?

Completely clueless, I visited various quilting blogs, more out of numbness than conscious thought. And Jackie provided me with an answer. See her blog post here. Black and white fabrics with one middle-value color.

Thanks Jackie!

THIS letter quilt will be small. The finished letters will be only 3" tall, and it will be only words. No daft jumping zebras. None.

Bet you do at least one daft jumping zebra. I can see it with its legs splayed out.

Oh I love that you're using a panagram. :) Lovely. have you ever read "Ella Minnow Pea" by Mark Dunn? It's a great read and includes panagrams. Ok I'm sure this sounds like I'm a total book nerd, but the subtitle of the book is: "A Progressively Lipogrammatic Epistolary Fable" Awesome big words for a quick read - fiction book. :)

This will be so fun!
