Playing with Letters

From My Alphabet:

Prominence Point

This alphabet was my answer to the question, "How can I get smooth curves but only sew straight seams?"

What if I start with a 9 x 9 grid?
What if I use a series of unconnected dots to create  letters?

I'll draw a circle so that I can best place the dots.
The mind is a wonderful machine.  It connects the dots, fills in the spaces and sees a smooth curve forming the letter C.  This works best at a distance but it works close up as well.
