Edging closer to the finish...

Here are my latest letters. Continuing with the colourful rainbow, folded origami letters with polka dots theme, I have now made it up to T! Only 6 to go...

Don't you love the shape of the Q? There is something elegant and stylish about the way that lower cross bit folds and presents itself. Perfect!

As a bit of a diversion - does anybody know what the line that crosses a Q is called?  I have found one answer online - "qua" but am not sure that's it...just curious.

And I kind of just like the lightning flash of the S and the way the two triangles form the upper curves of it - very cool.


  1. These are whimsical and positively charming while showing clean and simplified design at the same time. They make you focus and see the shapes of lettering in a different way. Wouldn't Little Dot have loved them!

  2. Fiona, these must be the trickiest letters I have seen. And, they are gorgeous.

  3. Where do you find the time to work these beautiful stylish and quirky letters. Valerie

  4. These letters are delightful. So innovative, elegant and quirky at the same time!

  5. I love these Fiona, it must be tricky getting the folds - the colours are so bright and happy!

  6. J'aime beaucoup! very imaginative.
    In french, the line that crosses the Q is called "tail" (queue)

  7. Talking about focusing on the counters...bingo, you nailed it Fiona! I LOVE the S, and the tail (queue, thanks Lau!) on the Q is just perfect!!


Thanks for taking the time to comment on our work - we really appreciate it!
