Now you know your ABC's!

After wanting to learn to applique for years, my mom finally taught me and Sassy, aka Andrea, this summer. Let me tell you- it is so easy! Especially the way I sewed this letters on, I just randomly sewed around the edge, so it will fray a little when washed. I ironed the letters onto the white cotton background using a fusible webbing, then sewed all the squares together. I always use 'warm and natural' batting for in between my quilts and then I got brave and hand quilted the squares with turquoise thread to match the back. My friend who had a baby in November isn't a quilter, so I'm hopeful she didn't notice my very imperfect stiches! I never got a picture of the finished product (as always!), but I was pretty close at this point. I just needed to finish up the binding. Anyway, I loved working on this quilt and was super sad to give it away- hopefully Hannah Rose will love it as much as I do!
