Yesterday when I was surfing the internet (there's about 200 blogs that I follow using Bloglines) I stumbled upon this site where you can find some brilliant Text Art.
Following up some of the links I discovered the calligram: a poem, phrase, or word in which the typeface, calligraphy or handwriting is arranged in a way that creates a visual image (source: Wikipedia)
I couldn't resist having a go at making a calligram (love that word!), so here is my first one: the gecko!
Making it was so much fun that today I made three more:

I see lots of possibilities here: having one of these (or another one) made into a thermofax screen, or use Spoonflower to print some calligram fabric... What about using selvedges!!!
Oh, I love the internet. Here is a blog dedicated to calligrams.
PS Stay tuned for the unveiling of the Flora quilts tomorrow at Art Quilts Around the World!
