Abecedarian Quilt

First Siblings Together quilt finished

I, as is often the case, bit off a bit more than I could chew, thinking that I would be able to make two quilts for Siblings Together. The tops were not such a problem, you can see them here, but finding time and space to quilt them both ready for this summer was going to be tricky. So I put out an SOS to the Siblings Together flickr group and two very kind ladies offered to help me out with the quilting.

I just finished putting the binding on the first one a few days ago. Nathalie quilted it for me on her new long arm machine. She did a beautiful job, the loopy pattern really suits the quilt and gives it a nice cuddly texture.

Backing and binding!

I used Thomas Knauer's Abecedarian quilt pattern, which is based on the Braille alphabet. I used a motley selection of light and dark background prints plucked from the stash.

It measures in at 56" x 68" so hopefully a good usable size even for a teen.

This is one of my FAL finishes, yippee!!
