"Learn your ABC's "
This baby quilt will be for Alice a neighbour expecting their first baby next month. Alice is a kindergarten teacher so what better than an alphabet quilt!
I just finished the top to-day. Now I have to layer it and quilt it. I will show it finished when I get done. I had quite a time finding fabric to match the letters . Some of the impossible ones to find, I went online and found the pictures I needed and printed off my own fabric sheets..LOL

What a beautiful quilt! Was this a "kit" or were you lucky enough to find all the fabrics, and if so WHERE? I'm wanting to make my 18 month old grandson an ABC quilt.
Hope you can help!
