I don't quilt so that could end up being worth nothing, but it was good experience I think. I did quite a bit of looking at other people's block designs to figure out how to section off a big, complicated piece. It makes sense to start by slicing through the whole picture so I broke it up into 4 larger vertical pieces and then went from there. I feel like I was losing my eye for figuring it out after a while. I have some issues with the P and Q sections... can you make a smaller section and then use it as one of your number in another, larger section?... I think it could work, you'd end up cutting out your pattern multiple times though so maybe that's why people don't do it.
I do want to try some of this soon but my own design would probably be an awful place to start. It would be fun to do a lot of different characters and make a quilt of them.
