Little Letters

 Have you seen the Little Letters Quilt over at Temecula Quilt Co.'s blog? Here is the link http://temeculaquiltco.blogspot.com/search/label/Little%20Letters Two letters will be posted each week and it is totally free! I could not decide which color way to go with, so I am making one of each. I also am only using fabric from my scrap bins including the background fabric, so mine will be very scrappy--just how I like!
Here are my A's. The quilts will measure 34 x 39 inches with 4 inch finished blocks. Sounds like the perfect size for a baby quilt! I can't wait for letter B.
 I finished this fall door hanger last night. I quilted it during football on Sunday and bound it last night during the Monday night games. I inherited it as a UFO from my sister.  The pattern is by Cottage Creek Quilts from Pam Puyleart as part of her "Backdoor Quilt Series." Here is the link http://www.cottagecreekquilts.com/patterns.html 
I have made several from this series. My hubby likes how they are narrow, so you can still see out the door. I am thinking of making door hangers for both my from and back doors because we use the back door much more. I am going to send this one off to my sister and make another one for myself. It is nice to have a finish so early in the week.

My Rainbow Orange Peel Quilt is up for a viewer's choice award over at Quilty Habit. There is some awesome eye candy, so be sure and go cast your vote for your favorite here http://quiltyhabit.blogspot.com/2014/09/viewers-choice-voting-orange-peel-qal.html

I was tagged for the Around the World Blog Hop and will make my post on Monday, 9/15. I am supposed to tag three more bloggers, but everyone I have asked so far has declined or they have already participated. If you would like to participate let me know and I will send you the questions and link my post to your blog. Thanks!
