ABC I Spy
40 x 48
I didn't expect to receive an invitation to a baby shower yet for a baby due on Halloween but I did and with only a 10 day advance notice. Yikes! I had to finish up this shower gift quickly. The shower for my nephew's wife is Saturday.
I quilted it with spirals on my DSM in a light green thread.
I have several sets of ABCs from swaps just waiting for an announcement of a new baby. I try to mix and match and include things with meaning to the family. Grandma (my sister) LOVES flamingos and grandpa LOVES to play golf. My nephew proposed on Halloween dressed as a banana and his soon-to-be wife was dressed as a monkey...
...and mom LOVES owls. I've made several of these ABC quilts and after all is quilted I iron on the letters of the alphabet from a purchased set of letters that are kind of velvety to the touch.
Like I said...I thought I had more time to finish up this quilt. I was going to order some ABC fabric I found on line for the backing but instead used some polka dot fabric from stash for the backing and binding.
With a little book on ABCs my gift is complete. I may add a rattle or two if I get a chance to get to the store. I was going to make a little stuffed rabbit and give a copy of the Velveteen Rabbit too but like I said...time was limited!
