When I saw the cute little alphabet blocks Val at Val's Quilting Studio was making, I was instantly inspired to make some of my own. I followed her links and saw that Temecula Quilt Company was posting a pattern for each letter. (About two a week.)
I thought these little blocks would be a great project to use some of my scraps on. As I was trying to decide what type of scraps to use, I began sorting my scraps into three main colorways - pastel blues and green, fabrics with black backgrounds and bright hot colors. Most of these scraps I consider to be those hard to use scraps. Rather than choose one colorway, I have decided to just make three sets of letter and use up these fabrics!
While the letters through G have been published, I have only finished the first three letters of the alphabet. These little cuties are all 4" blocks and loads of fun to make. It will be fun to see how each quilt evolves. I have challenged myself to make the layout of each quilt different - just to keep it interesting!
To keep me on track, I will be posting each week to Live a Colorful Life for the Choose Your Own Block along. You can see what every one else is working on here.
