Creative Goodness Party!

Have you seen the fun each week at QuiltShopGal's blog? You should hop over there and check it out!

I wanted to share in the fun, so I'm showing off my Alphabet Quilt that I made recently -- for a brand new grandma! This is definitely a "kid-friendly" project!

Each block in the quilt stands for a letter . . . airplanes for A, bugs for B, ears of corn for C, etc.

I free motion quilted it, mostly outlining the inhabitants of each block.

Lattice strips separate the blocks, and plain green blocks fill in the corners, to make it square -- the plain blocks are great for personalizing your quilt for the recipient! You can put all kinds of things; you might put the baby's name, the date of birth, etc.  I put the grandma's name, since she will be using it at her house. 

You can see from the top picture that the backing is fleece, in a cute construction equipment print.
