From My Pieced Alphabet


Pieced alphabets often have cut corners to indicate curves. With Braeside I've taken the cut corners to the extreme.

I like the result. There is a tension where the diagonals and verticals meet that gives this alphabet a lively feel.

The piecing for the "b" is typical of the letters in this alphabet.

The sewing consist of straight seams and 45 degree connector corners; neither of which is difficult.  However, it does require precision and is probably not an alphabet that a beginner would want to try.

For examples of other alphabets go to My Posts by Subject in the sidebar on the right and click on Lettering.
