Pretty Pink Alphabet
Well today is one of those bitter miserable old rainy days where there is nothing to invite one into the great outdoors. I love those days! Right after breakfast I chopped the wood, lit the fire and headed to the craft room to see what inspiration I could find.
What I found was a bunch of 2.5″ strips from the Terrain range of fabric – purchased at Get Stitched at a sale one day and a panel that had the letters of the alphabet with cute little pictures.
The two together were going to be mu project for the day.
I decided on individual fabrics per letter square .. but this would leave a blank space where I was one letter square short. Lucky for me the fabric range I was using was interesting enough to make up a block on its own.
I added a strip to either side of the letter squares
before adding to the top and bottom, then sewing them all together.
A friend of mine suggested not having them in order is good for helping children learn the letters by finding them on the quilt so with that in mind I stitched them together as you can see in the image below!
Now to decide on borders and quilting! Oh and the big question.. to whom shall the quilt be gifted!
