Big A little a, what begins with a? Aunt Annie's alligator, a...a...a!
Dr. Seuss's ABC has been one of my favorite children's books since I was a kid. Since then, I have read it so many times to my own children, and to my students, that I have a lot of it memorized!
When I decided to make a baby quilt for some friends of my youngest son, and I found this fabric at my favorite LQS, I knew just what to do! A whole cloth quilt would be quick and easy.
A yard and a half of ABC by Robert Kaufman, and some Kona Daffodil for the backing and binding, were perfect for this project!
After squaring up the ABC fabric, I ended up with a piece about 39 x 46. I used the lines of the print to give myself some guidelines for the gently curved quilting using my walking foot.
Of course, a copy of the book will be included in the package, because it is just so much fun to read aloud!
Although this wasn't a scrappy project to begin with, I did end up with some scraps of the Kona Daffodil leftover, which I know I will find a use for!
