    I'm looking for semi-easy alphabet blocks to make wall hangings for my grandsons. You always have great suggestions! Can you help?

    Thanks, but I tried that. I'm actually looking for blocks of individual letters where I can just spell their names. I tried the internet, too, but they all seem to be modern looking and not really for kids.

    When my DS was about 3 years old, I made him some alphabet blocks with my DH's tools (and some of mine). I got the patterns from the stationary store, they came in several sizes. I think the ones I used were 5 inches high, and for quilts I believe they would be easy to make as applique.

    i can just see them, either solid black on brilliantly colored backing, or bright colors on a black block. Thanks for the idea,
    my DGD just told us she was 4 months PG and counting!!
