The Last Group

These five letters don't fit in any of the other groups. None of them get built around a center block. None is built from a strip of letter fabric with a strip of background fabric on each side.  None of them start with a letter/background strip pair. None of them is based on a diagonal.

Each of these letters starts with a fussy bit.  Each requires several steps that build on the prior step. For each of these, you have to know where you want to end up before you get started.

None of these is particularly hard, either.  Except this version of the letter Q, I admit. This Q is a PITA but I still think it has potential.

I think if you consider free pieced letters based on how they are constructed, and if you think of each of them as being part of these five groups, I believe they are a lot less intimidating.

So, are all of these letters going to fit together somehow?

Well, like, duh!

I agree that the letter Q is a PITA, no matter how you build it. Mine always surprise me (and often not in a good way).

I know - practice, practice, practice!
