A Few More Letters

 Just a quick post to share my progress on my three sets of alphabet blocks.  Not only did I get four more letters finished but I also went back and added additional sashings and backgrounds to all of the previous blocks.  So now, all three sets are up to date through the letter "N"!




 This blue/green set will be made with just white sashing between the blocks and maybe lavender cornerstones.Very simple assembly.





This set is just a scrappy mess!  I am really going to have to get creative to make them all work together in one quilt.  But the positive about these blocks is a lot of my really old scraps are finding a home!



And this set...well, I made an error as I wanted to put a thin piece of gray around the letter before I put on the backgrounds.  I realized this about 5 blocks in and wasn't about to go back and fix them.  I have a plan for quilting that will hopefully redeem the blocks.  Fingers crossed!

So I am past the mid point on these blocks!  As they are filling up the design walls, I am looking forward to getting through the rest of the letters and quilting these up.  In fact, I am off to do a bit more sewing now!  Thanks for stopping by!!

I think the middle "scrappy mess" set of blocks looks the best. They've got the most contrast, making them the most readable. The scrappiness makes them the most FUN!

How fun! I need to check in to making letters! Love these and cannot wait to see all of them!

Three quilts at once...just when I think you've blown me away with your productivity, and you won't be able to top THAT accomplishment, you flatten me with a hurricane of quilts! These are really cute. Can't remember where you are getting the patterns...I like the blue/green one best, but they're all so happy!

Great letters! I love the wonky cutting on your last blocks. I'm way back, but will try to sew some more letters the next days.
