I have an alphabet panel, measures aprox 42"x24" that I want to make in to a quilt for a 3yr old little boy, but I am not sure how to go about it! As the letter boxes are not all the same size and they would become smaller as I joined them I don't think that would work. I thought about cutting the strips, each row would then become smaller with the 1/4 seam on all edges. Should I just keep the panel intact? I really do need some help please! And what about the background colour?!
I though I would back the fabric with cream colour fleece - would I also need wadding? and should I then quilt right through?
All advice most welcome - thanks in advance!
