Design Wall Monday-October 22, 2012

Yay, this is finished except for the binding. I finally decided what it would be and will put it on today after work. The baby will be born tomorrow, so I'll wait for the name, quilt it into one of the blocks and send it off.

Here is the next baby quilt. I won't finish it quite yet...I have  a wedding present to finish first, so it's ready to go with me to California and be delivered at Christmas time. I have to admit I think I like this one better. It is going to have white for the sashing and the rest of the background. I am going to move the first three and last three letters so that there only need to be the two blocks in the corners. I like the shapes of many of the letters in this one better than the first. These are not sewn together yet, so I'm going to change the Y. It's the only letter I don't like on this quilt. I'm going to have the tail drop straight down, like this Y.

I was at IKEA yesterday and found this. It's in the form of a twin duvet, but there is plenty of fabric for the back of the alphabet quilt. Though there are Swedish letters, I can go with it. The gray quilt is backed with green fleece. It is a mottled color that matches the R very well.

I like the blocky letters on both backgrounds.

What a great backing "fabric" you found. And I agree, I like the white sashing best.

I really like your letter blocks. Did you follow a pattern or are they an original design?

I love the Swedish letters for backing....so unique!

great letters. I particularly like the one you will be doing with white background. It makes the letters pop.
