Yesterday I showed you this lettering and complained that it was inconsistant and therefore badly designed in terms of appearance.
Today I'm going to show you how it was pieced and complain about that too.
However, if the U were pieced this way, then any misalignment would not be as noticeable.
If the A were pieced like this, then misalignment is no longer as great a concern.
Designing pieced lettering is not just about creating letters that look good. Designing includes deciding how best to sew the letters. It means, among other things, avoiding wherever possible the potential for misalignment and avoiding creating unnecessary seams.
Should you wish to criticize my lettering, you can find examples by going to My Posts by Subject in the sidebar on the right and clicking on Lettering.
