    Great job! I made one a few years ago for one of my son's for Christmas. They have 4 children and I put all 6 names on it in the form of a crossword puzzle.

    Great job, and I'm sure that you have enough of the coordinating fabric to make multiples.

    not really- like i said about the 'adventure' of locating the fabrics to depict the letters---
    some i only found a 5" square of it- or some other small scrap. i found small tops in thrift stores, kids clothes in rag bags...i searched for over a year to find 78 different fabrics (3 of each letter of the alphabet) many were just enough to make them work- so, no i can not make a couple more like it---it's the only one- until i decide to start a new letter/fabric search- or maybe someone will start an alphabet charm swap...

    Your hard work and determination paid off. I love the quilt and I think that I'm going to copy your idea and start my search, with your permission. I think it will be fun to try and find fabric for and alphabet quilt.
