My mail had goodies…Fun goodies for a gal that loves all things vintage and all things ABC’s.
This was sent from Leigh Ann. She had bought some fabrics with good intentions when her grandchildren were little…alas they grew up before time allowed her to make a baby quilt. That left her passing her goodies on to me.
I love the fabric. ABC prints are always high on my list of favorites. I love education and ABC quilts seem to say that so it’s a perfect quilt for me to make..but now I need to come up with a pattern.Kelli suggested cutting out the letters and randomly adding fabric around the edges. Right now if I cut the letters out, they would be all different sizes. Notice how big the “Q” is and how small the “B” is. “V” and “W” are together so that one is extra big. Kelli thinks I should randomly add scrappy prints around the letters and try to get them all to the same size like 6 1/2″. That sounds like a pretty good idea to me and something I could do easily enough.
The letters don’t look girly but the red fabric that matches it kind of does. It has little girls playing dolls on it….Hmm….
Kalissa and Craig are going to find out it they are having a boy or a girl but that doesn’t happen until sometime in May. In the meantime, I think I am going to start working on this as time allows.
Leigh Ann-Thanks so much for your well wishes for our new grand baby. I appreciate your thoughtfulness.
Does anyone else have ideas to make these wonderful fabrics into a baby quilt?
