What would kind of quilt do you make for a baby whose parents are both English teachers?
Well, an alphabet quilt of course!
I set my Summer Sparkle Star quilt aside for awhile to get going on this one.
Hopefully, I'll have it completed before school starts in a few weeks.
My blocks are made with Dilly Dally fabric from Me and My Sister Designs and Bella Bleached White Solid fabric too.
The pattern is basically from the Moda Spell It With Fabric Blog Hop that happened back in February. My blocks are sized a bit smaller to make the quilt baby sized.
I wanted to make some letters during the blog hop.......those quilts were amazing........but I didn't really know what I'd do with an ABC quilt.
When this opportunity came up, I thought it was the perfect excuse to go make some letters!
Originally, I wasn't planning to make the letters white. I was going to use some of the same fabrics that I'm now using in the background.
It just wasn't going well for me when I tried to lay out my color combinations.
Then, I was lucky enough to be reading the blog Happy Quilting and I saw Melissa's post about her recently finished ABC quilt.
She had used a white solid for her letters and the background fabrics we were both using were bright fabric lines from Me and My Sisters Designs, so that that gave me a general picture of what my quilt might look like.
I loved it.
Thanks so much Melissa!
I'm off to get a few more letters done before I make dinner and then drive a boy over to cross country practice.
If I get a chance to take a few more pictures of the next letters tonight, I will.
Maybe I won't get the letters out of order this time, like I did in the first few pictures I took. Ha!Ha!
Glad I caught that mistake! I guess as long as I don't do that in the actual quilt, I'm good.
Wouldn't that be embarrassing? LOL!!
