Activity for P Week


Activity for Q week

We worked on our Alphabet Quilt.  The three oldest girls sewed all the blocks together.  Bringing back my Mom's vintage Singer Fashion Mate sewing machine was perfect for having enough machines for all the girls to work at the same time.  I just finished zigzag stitching all the applique letters today.  Now all it needs is a border, the layering and quilting, and binding.  It will be awesome when it's completed.  Here's what we have so far!

The embroidering was going to take too long and too much thread so zigzagging the edges of the letters worked better.:)

I have still have a few catch-up posts, but this one brings us up to speed on our journey along the Alphabet Path!
