Quilt idea

I've seen quilts made with alll kinds of patterns, but had an idea for a group-quilt, maybe a church theme or something -- why not make one like a big crossword puzzle with huge letters? :) If one could adapt a compatible theme, i think that would be clever.

Those were great! Your sister could even make a "turkey" quilt to go along with the deer, using a similar pattern to the tie quilt...it reminded me of a fanned turkey tail. A friend's mother here who is 4/4 bilingual Cherokee makes quilts that feature the Cherokee syllabary and seven clans, using fabric blocks and embroidery (with yarn) to make the letters, so I think your crossword puzzle idea would be cool and turn out very well.

Quilts are an amazing art expression.

An area church just did one in a bright country
blue and white. Each square had the country house
or country cabin in it, done in blue. Very simple looking, homey, but elegant, too.
