ABC Quilt

This is the only kit I've ever bought to make a quilt from, but it was so cute I couldn't pass it up.  I started it back in April.     It didn't take me long to get the borders on all the squares.  And I believe that was the last time I showed it on this blog.  I didn't know who I was going to give it to, so I never got it finished.
Now I know where it's going and here's the finished product.

 This is the American Jane ABC  quilt kit.

 I used flannel for the backing.  I always use flannel on the back of my baby quilts, but I normally quilt them more tightly.  This one I did a loose stipple because I wanted to get some quilting in the letter blocks, and so the quilt puckered up some.  Hmmm.  I've never had that happen before.  I thinks the flannel is the reason it did that.

 But I don't think the baby will mind.  He will be able to learn his alphabet from this quilt.


  1. That *is* cute. :D Yeah, flannel sure is nice as a backing, isn't it? Soft, fuzzy, warm. . . mmmm :)
