Word Play

The mailman delivered this to my box yesterday!
I'm pretty excited about Tonya Ricucci's new book, Word Play. I've been a fan of hers for a while now. You can get it on Amazon.com, like I did, by clicking on the tab at her website. 
 Last spring, I used her tutorials when making a little wall hanging for my grand daughter.
                  Oliver's quilt has his name along the border of this quilt, thanks to Tonya. Her directions are very clear and easy to follow.  I'm hoping to do a whole quilt of words someday,  like the one on the cover of Word Play.  I think that would be so fun hanging in my house!
I even have a Christmas quilt with funky letters pieced into it. Come back on Christmas Eve for a full few of Santa and his reindeer on a quilt! 


  1. I love your basket quilt. I hadn't been too interested in Tonya's book but looking at this quilt makes me ask the question...are the letters pieced? I would love that and that would be the reason I would buy her book.

  2. Haven't tried the technique yet - but with all the buzz I think I might need to! Your basket quilt is wonderful. Have you showed the full thing ever?

  3. Your's is the second blog post I've read today about this book! Guess I'm going to have to get it!!

  4. I got the book yesterday too. I can't wait to try it out after the holidays.

  5. I love anything word-related (probably explains my obsession with selvages). I hadn't even heard of this book but I'll check it out!

  6. so glad you got the book! your letter quilts are awesome. ooh, a quilt of just words would be fab - I know I love the quilt on the cover too ;-)
