The Big W

Of all the letters, I think making the uppercase W is the trickiest. It seems to take the most fabric, and it occupies the most space.It is one of the letters I like the most. I make two V's and then set them side by side. Much trickery and some geometry is involved.
Then I set my rule on top and determine how to trim it. I also use strips of fabric to isolate the letter, but I have removed them in the photo.
W, all ready to join the others.

W and M have got to be the worst letters to make.

I like your idea of squaring them up and chopping off the top and bottom.
