Yesterday I showed you the first 6 letters of this alphabet. Here are the next 6.
All the pieces are simple to make. There just happens to be a lot of them.
Often people assume I paper piece my alphabets. I don't. I prefer to simply piece.
However, there are exceptions.
I do sometimes paper piece part of a letter.
freezer paper method.
How narrow to make the L is not a simple decision.
The L in the second word is the same width as the E,F & J.
The last L is the narrowest.
The space between the L and A tends to break up the word. The goal is to reduce the space but not make the L look odd.
The last L is too narrow; it looks like it belongs to a different alphabet.
I decided on the third L.
You might have noticed something odd about the spacing between the letters.The F is almost touching the L and the L is almost touching the A.
Again this is to keep the word from breaking up by reducing the open area between these letters.
If the first letter was a B instead of an F the spacing between the B and L would be the same as between the A and C.
