I usually make my W's very w-i-d-e, but I wanted to try one that was very tall.
In Art School, I studied Lettering and Calligraphy for a year. We were told to keep a morgue - a scrapbook of lettering samples that interested us. I've long since lost mine, but I do keep my eyes open.
Regular readers know how much I love to watch tennis on TV while I sew. Last year I saw a big tall W used at Wimbledon.
What attracted me to it was the bottoms were not trimmed off, that each leg of the W ended in a sharp point.
So of course I had to try to make one (or two) myself.
