Challenge 98: Word Play

Challenge Hostess: Tobi Hoffman     
Title: Word Play
Theme: Alphabet Soup, letters as artistic elements
Technique: Any
Due date: Nov. 1, 2014

Do you have a favorite word, one that just tickles your mind, maybe with its sound, maybe its meaning?  Do you remember as a child taking a word and repeating it so many times that it seemed like a nonsense word?  Is there a word that others might apply to you, whether because you use it so often, or just seems the perfect one to describe yourself?  Or maybe you’re a punster, getting joy out of a play on words, or enjoy crossword puzzles, especially the tricky kinds.  The challenge this month is to use words in your quilt to create your picture.  Use color to accentuate the mood.
