ABC's.... you can 'Spell it with Fabric'!

 Love the song and sang it often to
 my kids when they were little...
 Now I am sewing it with fabric....
 now you know the ABC's 
Why don't you come and play with me????

It's an adorable ABC....
 and the latest Moda Block along,
 'Spell it with Fabric'

 I found the links HERE a few weeks back and had lots of fun
 this is a free downloadable project..
*** UPDATE if you wish to purchase the BOM in a downloadable booklet you can HERE
 If you decide to make it, surely let me know 
so I can visit and look at yours too.

 I used a favorite Jelly Roll and of lots of scraps for the backgrounds.
 The fabrics just worked and it was easy as to assemble each block.

 My plan was to do a block a week, but it then it changed to
1 a day, then as they were so addictive I just went for it.

The teapot block was a freebie I found on the web,
 foundation peiced and lovely to do too.

 I am so pleased with the result... that I'm in love with ABC x x x

Happy Easter to you!

Happy Easter to all.
 Hope you have been able to celebrate with friends and family.
 We have been redecorating for the last two weeks and although some work will not be finished till next week we are almost tidy and back to normal. I have been doing a little sewing here and there but mainly have been too exhausted by evening. So I just sit watch a little TV then retire to bed as I am tired as... renovating or redecorating has been so worth it.

Tomorrow is sewing day for me, so I will be sitting outside watching the girls play and doing a little handstitching... Can't wait!

 Sweet Easter Hugs
