Oh NO!

I have been thinking of what to do with the first NO in the Not Paper Pieced quilt. Here are some options.

I really like the cat as a "full stop," but from a distance, you don't see him. So that doesn't work.

I wondered if maybe the scissors would "read" as an exclamation mark. The answer was no. (It looks like the scissors are going to attack the cat...)

Was the moth better than the cat? Um, no.

So, does the moth look better as a "full stop?"  Nope.

What if he faces another direction? Uh, nope.

So maybe it would work as the dot in an exclamation point? I like the mark, but here the bug looks like he's going to get sucked up by a vacuum cleaner.

This isn't any better.

As usual, once  I make a decision I stop taking pictures and start sewing. I like this flower. It might be a bit big, but that's an easy fix.

So that's done.

Happy Mother's Day.

I like the flower too.
It carries the weight more so than the scissors.
I do like that cat though...

I do hope the kitty gets a second chance someplace on this quilt. He was my favorite.
Enjoying the process with this. You inspire me to make changes when it just doesn't seem right.

I love making words in quilts. I enjoy following along with your process. I usually don't see what you see and change around or what others do and suggest. Then I think "why didn't I see that"? But on this post I do see something that I thought I might suggest. What about that little ball of yarn? Are there any larger ones, or is it just that small one next to the cat? I think that would be clever as the bottom of the exclamation.
