I actually make Chicken Tetrazzini, so that word has to go in the Chicken quilt.  Legend has it the dish was named for an opera singer of great girth and appetite.

Instead of just showing you the finished word, I thought you might like to see my progress. Generally I don't make multiple letters at once, but if they are all made from the same fabric I will.

Step One. I'll leave you to figure out which parts go to which letter.

Step Two. As letters were finished, I moved them to the design wall.

Step Three

TETRAZZINI is about 36" wide.

Here's a view of the design wall. This quilt will be BIG!  How big?  Hell, I dunno. As big as it needs to be. I do have an idea of how this is going to go together, but I won't worry about any of that until I have made a lot more words. Then I'll figure it out.

BTW... NO, I will not make "SOS". Sure, I know what it means (I wasn't born yesterday). Three reasons:
1. It doesn't make me think of chicken.
2. I don't think it's funny.
3. I think it's in poor taste.

Just a clarification here, in case anybody thinks I'm a prude. I have no compunctions using the F-bomb. But I won't make it in fabric.

I guess I'm running clue-free re sos and that's OK... I'm not the early bird catching the worm on this one. Carry on, the suspense is killing me :o)
Have a great day.
Always, Queenie
