Kristin- I'm having so much fun!

These are my first free pieced letters and were so much fun to do! We've decided to write out Merry Christmas in several languages on the border, starting with French. I have only done the first letters of the other phrases, can you tell what they will be?

After the letters are all done I'll add some more background fabric and figure out how to attach them together. We're still thinking about how to do the interior of the quilt. I think this is the first time I've ever worked a quilt from the outside in!
I've been thinking about another quilt too. I want to do a Peace on Earth version with trees and stars. Must concentrate here!

What a great idea to work from the utside in! At least you won't have to worry whether your borders fit the inside, as they will be designed to!

Well done! I'm guessing "God Jul" and "Bon Natale." Forgive my spelling--I'm not much of a linguist.

Yes! The last one is Mele Kalikimaka. We had to put that one in after living in Hawaii for a year.

Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say on a bright, Hawaiian Christmas day. It's the island greeting that I send to you from the land where palm trees swaaaaay...

I miss living on O'ahu.

Love your letters, especially the E and N. Mine are just too straight.
