This Book "Word Play Quilts" by Toni Ruccici is a fantastic resource for improv letters.
She has a little bit on her blog but Mrs Sew and Sow has written a couple of good posts based on the book.

Tips for Inprov peicing your letters:
In order to stay within the size limits, start with some 3/4” and 1.5 “ strips of the word colour fabric. This will help you restrict the size of the words so that you don’t end up with a giant block.
Do a rough sketch that breaks down the structure of the letter. Start with a section and work your way out.
Don’t worry– wonky is OK. Just be sure to have nice 1/4” seam allowances to maintain the integrity of the quilt when washed.
