Butterfly Baby Quilt – Using the Alphabet

At first I thought this was going to be a quick and easy quilt, beyond the complication of free-motion quilting for the first time. Then I thought it would be a good idea to put her name on it.

Yeah, alphabets suck. EQ gives you the option of lots of corners and intricacies, so I sketched out something simpler on graph paper. Even that has been complicated to cut! And I still haven’t done the triangle pieces to make the corners. But I do know how many of each I need, and wrote myself a reminder on how to cut the stripes…

Can you see her name?

Tomorrow I’ll cut out the eight corners and see if I can sew it all together without messing up. We’ll see!
