I Just Could Not Resist!

I thought long and hard about joining Temecula Quilt Company's ABC quilt along.
You see I have three daughters, so I needed to make three.quilts.  But how could anyone resist that darling quilt.

So, I called my friend Elaine and she loved it too!
We met and got busy.

I have been waiting for a project where I could use my solids and, baby, this was it!!  I thought I could use about 13 fabrics for a repeat of two. I am using Kona white for the background.  



The quilt along is up to letter G, so we spent our time cutting. 

First the solids.  Thank goodness for Elaine, she is a math wiz and let me know just how much to cut for each piece.
Here are A thou G, cut and ready.



We also cut the background strips and labeled them for the future blocks.



Today I made A.

I have been singing this song all the time I was sewing.

♫ ♫   A your adorable   ♪ ♪ ♫

More verses to follow!

Here are my A's



Happy Sewing!
