Quilt Retreat: A,B,C; 1,2,3; Baby, you and me.

You know that feeling you get when you slowly realize you're into a project that's WAY over your head? That's how I started to feel around letter G.
It took me all weekend, but I managed to finish all the letters of the paper-pieced alphabet for the new quilt I'm working on.

And this is a picture of the baby quilt I started for Shirley Jean about two years ago when I was pregnant with her. Thanks, Kristi, for helping with the binding!

This ABC Quilt is brought to you by the number four.

Hey! we both have purple "4" pillows on our blogs!
I like your letters and am quite proud that you finished all of them. More than I would have done.
Nice job, Erin.

That is going to be darling. It will help bitty wee to learn and use words at an early age.

I'm way impressed because those teeny tiny quilting needles intimidate me. I scare away from any craft that looks like it requires a magnifying glass. Good job! And I sincerely hope you finish it before that baby comes otherwise you may have to shelf it for a year OR TWO!
