    ABC Baby Quilt

    I am planning out an alphabet baby quilt. I am planning for it to be 5 squares across and 6 down. I can't decide what size each block should be. I want it big enough to applique a picture and the letter in each block, but I don't want the quilt to large. I am planning to put a small sashing between each block and borders around the edge. I would love to hear your opinions

    I would suggest 6" finished blocks. If you use 2" finished sashing and a 4" border you would have a 50 x 58 inch quilt which is a nice lap size.

    I like the 6" block size, but I would probably make the sashing between more narrow, like 1" finished. Just MHO.

    I agree. 8" with 1" sashing would make a nice sized baby quilt. I can't wait to see pictures!
