Eye Words Quilt — Work in Progress

My first word quilt was the “Hope quilt” I did for Intueri to make a quilt to help her raise money for Multiple Sclerosis Society.  I ventured into word quilts after finding Lazy Gal Quilting blog.  Earlier this summer, I began playing around with piecing words that have to do with the eye.  I would twitter photos as I made the word blocks.  Turned out to be fortuitous as I somehow (even being careful to check myself) misspelled ophthalmology.

MaryMillsRN caught the mistake and was kind enough to let me know.  It would have been horrible to have completed the quilt and then discovered the misspelling.

@rlbates Do you want me to tell you that ophthalmology is misspelled?

It is machine pieced and measures 50.5 in X 68 in.  I have basted it and am machine quilting it.

Here is a close view to see some of the fabrics and words.
Here is one of my 20/20 (vision).  I am happy with how it is turning out.
