Back in the days when I was a kid,
school always started after Labor Day.
Now most of the districts at least in this area
begin in August.
I'm sure it's the same amount of days,
or maybe even less,
but it still seems weird to begin classes while
August is still considered summer.
We all know things change,
but learning the ABC's
is still standard.
Back to School
always reminds me of one of my
41" x 41"
This delightful pattern is designed by
Her pattern company is called
The pattern was done in wools,
but someone had gifted me a great assortment
of hand dyed flannels so
that's what I used.
It made the quilt lighter and more useable for me.
The designs were fused on black flannel and then
buttonholed around each shape by hand using
perel cotton thread.
I love the chunky letters and
the pictures that represent each.
Connie has a great imagination.
The border with the scallops and heart appliqued shapes
looks great around center design.
It's that time of the year to
enjoy any alphabet quilts you might have in your collection,
despite the fact,
that it's still August.
Until Next Time-
