O... my goodness!

An O is easy to make. Start with a small background square, and sew your letter fabric all around on all sides.Sewing it together is easy. It's trimming it that makes it so much fun. Where do you want that hole in the O to be?

O... the possibilities...And then, of course, you can tinker with the shape of the O...And remember, letters work together to form WORDS. This DOG is from The Brown Fox quilt. Doesn't the low hole in the O help make the word look slow and lazy? Here we've got two O's next to each other. Two identical O's side by side wouldn't have been particularly interesting.

So have some fun. Make your O with LOTS of extra letter fabric so you can trim it down later.

Love your Os. It is great to see so many examples of the letters. Gives us all sorts of ideas.

I'm working on a special project for you that won't be ready until we get to the end of the alphabet ... and yes, I TOO love the way you show so many variations on each letter. There is no one "right" way (although some do work better than others).

Funny Os, love them! Looks like I have to make more than only one letter-quilt....
