Alphabet Quilt



Last month we were blessed with another great nephew.  Since he was a second child there was no baby shower, therefore no reminder that time was running out on making  a quilt. I felt the need to get it finished today as I will be returning to work on Monday.


I had a ton of scraps left from my Kona Jelly Rolls from the winter and thought they would work really well with the Moda Alphabet quilt that has been making the rounds lately.  I will admit that the letters are addicting and really speedy to make. 


My biggest error in judgement was setting the quilt at 5 blocks across and 6 down instead of 6 across and 5 down.  My version came out at something like 47x72 where the other way would have been close to a 60 inch square.  The blocks are rectangles not squares.  Next time I will try it that way, yes there will be a next time as it really was a fun quilt to build.    It doesn't really matter either way it will be loved.  It will be in the mail to him tomorrow.
