ABC - Tout Fini!

I have finished the Alphabet Quilt for my Doll Quilt Swap 4 partner. I will ship it out to her on Tuesday. (Because on Monday I will bring it in to work to show it off.)This is the first time I ever machine quilted anything so complex. Here you can see the outline quilting I did.
I pieced the backing, using some of the fabrics I used to make the letters.
The pink binding is the same pink as the letter "L" and the light color in the tulips.
The finished quilt is about 19" x 22". I am very pleased with it, and hope my swap partner likes it. I have to make one of these lovelies for myself!

Great quilt. I don't belong to this swap but certainly would love to receive this one if I did.

Great job!! I am practicing doing some letters as well. Yes they are more time consuming than other projects, but a fun challenge. Stop by my blog and see the teacup I made. I like to have NEVER figured out the handle. Whuuugh!!

That is a darling quilt. I love that you added the flowers. The bit of pink just sparks it all.
