Thanks to Amy for organizing an online Quilt Festival!
It was easy for me to figure out which is my favorite quilt. It's my Alphabet Sampler Quilt. I had been making Tonya's free pieced letters so much, I decided I needed to make an alphabet for myself as a reference, so wouldn't have to keep looking at the instructions whenever I wanted to make a letter.
I knew I wanted both upper and lower case letters. Somewhere along the line I decided to add numbers. I wasn't sure how I wanted to arrange them, so I stared looking at early American cross-stitch samplers. Then I decided to add my house, and sign the quilt along with the date.
I needed some elements to fill empty spaces, so I added hearts, flowers, butterflies, the spools of thread and finally, my own hand.
I'm really thrilled with the way it turned out.
