Alphabet embroidered quilt


I am really proud of this quilt. It took me a while to decide what to do with those cute bear, alphabet and number panels but a little bit of embroidery and some bright modern fabric makes for an adorable baby quilt!


I used different stitches to highlight details on each letter block.


Of course there's a 'Q' quilt!


mmm french knot cherries!



I did straight line quilting with my trusty cone of Aurifil 50wt in 2021.


The quilt is for sale in my Etsy shop.


I used different bold modern fabrics and dots and the backing is Riley Blake, Apple of My Eye - I really love that print! The black and white stripe binding worked perfectly.
