McIrish Annie - here's my plan!







Well, I know that lots of you have already started constructing blocks and letters but I have another project that I have to finish before I can start cutting and sewing anything for this winter class.

But here is my idea! I usually just take pencils and draw a picture of how I want something to look and then worry about the construction aspects later. I'm quite an artist Huh??? This may not get done for Christmas but I hope to get a start on the letters and some of the wonky houses and trees over the long Thanksgiving weekend.

I'm not married to the wording so that may change but I like the layout alot.
You guys are really burning it up out there! It made me feel guilty enuf to pull out my pencils and paper and get this scratched out.

For me, I found doing the sketch first and thinking of words got me started working on my quilt. YOur sketch looks great, BTW!

I sketched and sketched..and did something totally different!

Maybe I should get out my crayons.

I love this line and think you've made a great start! I still haven't done a sketch, although I've made some letters and some trees...starting at the end and working backwards.
