It's time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival. I'd hoped to have the nail polish quilt done but life has been keeping me too busy to get it pin basted and quilted. So I went looking through my projects for something else I wanted to show off.
Little Letters (free pattern from Temecula Quilt Company) was just the challenge I needed last year. The blocks are fun and fiddly, without being too overwhelming. And I'd been wanting an alphabet sampler quilt.
I decided that mine needed a pieced border, something that would make the finished quilt feel more like a stitched sampler... (And isn't it cool that this one is dated and I can tell when I made that project instead of trying to figure it out from old blog posts like I usually wind up doing?)
Honestly, I think my favorite part of this tutorial series was the pictures of stencils and apples and rulers. The letters look nothing at all like those stencils, but I still think of them every time I look at this quilt.
