This quilt was pieced from an alphabet panel I bought from a woman who was de-stashing. The sashing, border, backing and binding all came from my own stash. I wanted to preserve the pink checked border around each letter, so it required fussy cutting and fussing sewing, as the fabric between each block in the panel did not leave a full 1/4 inch seam. I’m happy with the result of that careful work. I quilted it with an overall ABC meander. The binding is a pink, blue and white striped cotton.
I finished it in September 2011, just in time to enter into the Fergus Fall Fair in the baby quilt category where it won first place. The quilt will be gifted to our recently-born, first great niece, Charlize. Her grandparents are hosting a family shower with an “Eduction” theme. An alphabet quilt will be a perfect gift!
