Family Friendly

Each quarter, Curated Quilts host a challenge for a mini quilt - a selection of those submitted make it into the magazine.   This quarter's challenge was "Well Said" - an opportunity to send a message with your quilt.

I love putting text on minis and have done it about a dozen times.  After thinking about this challenge for awhile, I decided to go with this family friendly version of swearing!   The inspiration comes from my weekly games of Pickleball with friends.  When someone misses a particularly easy shot, it becomes a challenge to keep our language clean and we have come up with a bunch of different words to use instead!

The actual term for using symbols like this is grawlix.  If you read through your Sunday comics, I imagine you'll see it more than once!

I'll be linking up here.

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. I am really enjoying the creations for this challenge and the details behind each mini. I'm off to learn more about grawlix!

  2. I had no idea that those symbols had a word! Fun interpretation!

  3. Well done. And I learned a new word. ☺

  4. Very cute! Love the funky word grawlix - lol!


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
