My design wall is full of bits and pieces of stuff I'm working on. My Hugs and Kisses quilt by Jaybird only needs the last two rows sewn together. And while I told myself I wouldn't start another project until I finished that task,....well I tell myself lots of stories that aren't entirely true. LOL!
These three blocks are the start of another quilt. I love how it uses several fabrics in each block and I'm combining all of the collections of American Jane fabrics that I've been hording for soooooo long.
This quilt is called Alpha Bits & Pieces by Sandy Klop of American Jane. It was published in the April 2014 issue of BH&G American Patchwork & Quilting. I was able to purchase an alphabet panel in a red colorway. I love that this quilt will combine patchwork and a sampler -two crafts that make me very happy!
In the three blocks I've sewn I picked lots of my favorite American Jane prints.
Polka dots and ABCs...
Chickens and ABCs...
And the trifecta...polka dots and chickens and ABCs!!!
I'm detecting a theme - dotty chickens that know the alphabet - what a theme! As I was selecting fabrics and sewing these blocks together I got to thinking about the size of this quilt and the size of the wall I want to display it on. Adjustments will need to be made. I'm mulling over possibilities and hopefully after making some more blocks I'll make a decision. No matter what I'm having fun playing with these fabrics. I LOVE American Jane!
