ABC's

I made a bit of progress on the Stacy Nash Primitives Netty's Sampler at my Dad's house yesterday. He had a doctors' appointment for mom on Monday so I went on Tuesday instead. Dad and I had a laugh when I noticed Netty dropped the "J" on her sampler and then ends the whole alphabet with the "V." 


I got these templates the other day. It did not occur to me to take a picture of them before peeling off their backing paper. I've never done curved piecing but I'm eager to try. 


These templates make the blocks for Winding Ways quilts. I fell in love with the illusion circles created with this block. Oh, so much fun! 


I have a couple of quilting projects ahead of this, of course! I don't want too many things left half finished...

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Love the colors in your alphabet! I can't even imagine sewing straight blocks together to make a quilt but I know you will rock those curved ones :)

Such a nice start on this shortened alphabet :) I love stitching alphabets! Will look forward to seeing your curved piecing. I started dabbling in hexies this winter, but never took it beyond making some. I did love it and do hope to make a quilt out of them (along with lots more!) one of these years.

Nice work on the sampler. The older ones often used the same letter for I and J. Not so sure why she stopped at V though, ran out of space or thread?
