On one of my trips down south to see family I stopped in at Gail's Patchwork Emporium to buy a 1930s fat 1/4 for a friend. There were some lovely prints and I bought myself some too.
I spotted this, oh so cute, picture fabric. It shows the children playing, doing chores and having fun at different times of the day.
This was a perfect piece for me to put into my Little Letters quilt I wanted to make.
I wanted it a little bigger than the pattern and thought this would be just right.
AND IT IS......
All the strips are cut to get the maximum out of the placements of pictures.
I do not want to waste any of it.
All the blocks are cut from the panel.
They are not square but measure. 5" * 5.75" cut...
I have put them in time order to sewinto the quilt.
Now to start the letters.
Here they are going together.
The letters are alternated with the picture blocks.
Telling a story of what goes on during the day.
I have laid out the letters as you learn and sing the song.
I have built up the letters from a 4" finished block and added small borders to match the alternating picture blocks. I am not putting sashing in...
Thank you to Sheryl for designing these Little Letters.
