I left Jersey in February knowing that I had to make a baby quilt for a friends first grand son. I knew I had plenty of time. Ha, ha, ha. Last week a mutual friend called to tell me the baby had arrived. I hadn't started the quilt yet. so much for lots of time
A few years ago I saw this idea all over the blog world. I am very sorry but I never noted the pattern designer or the actual name of the pattern. This version is from my memory. I have no idea if the letters of the original were appliqued or pieced, if the quilt was rectangular or square etc. etc.
Last winter I joined in the Little Letters sew along at Temecula Quilt Company. I used those letters for my quilt. I did it over the course of 5 evenings and a quilt morning. My version ended up as a 48 inch square.
I backed it with a cotton sheet of white with blue pin dots. It will be mailed this week and this child will get his quilt before he's a month old. He won't know it's a wee bit late.
