Wink, Wink!

 
I'm getting my lesson plan ready for the free-pieced letters class I'll be teaching in three weeks at Quilted Threads. This word, WINK, is one of my samples. This particular exercise is about using your fabrics to their full potential.

The finished letters are 5" (about 13 cm) tall and the word is 23" (58cm) wide.
Here is the word before I trimmed it.

Love the word! The fabrics are lovely and still in the same family of colors, so the letters read as one word. Have you ever made letters of all different colors in the same word? Does it work as one word?
Hugs,

Terri, you can, but it's tricky to get it just right!
