Alexander, Lissa . she is adorable, active, accommodating, accomplished,
affable, amicable, affectionate and she's ambidextrous ! Love her!So enough with the questions. Let's talk about fabric and patterns.
I was given the letter A and told to tell my story in fabric. So I choose to make
an entire quilt that showcased all the fabric collections I have even done.
Throughout the blog hop you will be collecting patterns for the ABC's. You may want to tell your story in fabric, so I have included a copy of  how I set my letters together.
Click here for a printable version of the layout.
The diagram is finished sizes so be sure and add seam allowances.
 I had so much fun re-creating my own selvedge as a border for my quilt.

See it along the bottom edge of the quilt?
I used  my alphabet plus fabric from the Potluck collection to cut out individual
letters and sew them back into words.

So it is time for you to start and here is your first pattern.
