 When kids learn to sing the
alphabet song,
 the letters
get lumped together.
So, little kiddos,
sing merrily along,
not aware that there
are 26 letters in the alphabet,
not just 22.

I finally had a chance to get caught up
with the Quilt Show's BOM
A-Z for Ewe and Me,
by Janet Stone.

It's too easy to get behind.
This week, I worked on the 
"LMNOP" plus a few others.

A sampler is fun, but 
it's important to pay attention
as you work on each new block.

It's all about balance.
Making sure that the colors and fabrics
are evenly distributed over the quilt top.
Especially, when the BOM
has you sewing the blocks together as you go.

 Then it's easy to get off balance.

But, so far, so good, I think.

Especially the letter
Until Next Time-


  1. I think it is your choice of fabrics that make this so incredibly it!!

  2. So far...adorable and well balanced.

  3. You're so right about balancing the colors/patterns. Your quilt is looking fabulous - love the soft and vintage quality of it.

  4. Love all of your appliqué and variety! Pastels, color, traditional - you've covered it all. The alphabet in pastels is sweet. Congratulations on the Roseville progress.

  5. Cute post, Kyle. The quilt looks so good!

  6. Yep it is a good letter that LMNOP - I remember it well from when the kids were young hehe! It is a great quilt and lovely colour choices. Your work is always so varied and inspiring!

  7. What a gorgeous quilt. The colours are so beautiful, and look perfectly balanced.

  8. This is a great quilt! Love you fabric choices! Didn't you know 'lmnop' is one word, of which the meaning is vague. lol

  9. Kyle this is just gorgeous and I can't wait to see it complete! blessings, marlene

  10. I didn't know you were making the alphabet quilt. The designer has done some wonderful alphabet quilt designs. You have been accomplishing a lot of applique of late.
