Animal Alphabet Quilt ~ Getting Started

While keeping the laundry going after we returned from our vacation recently, this is what I started working on in my sewing room, which happens to be on the same floor as the laundry...

Animal Alphabet Quilt ~ Getting StartedThis panel is part of the Animal Alphabet line of fabric by Cheri Strole for Moda. It is so bright and cheerful! I started by pressing it and then cutting it into strips. I had also cut 2 inch strips of the coordinating fun striped fabric for framing each block.

Animal Alphabet Quilt ~ Getting StartedAfter cutting apart the blocks then pressing and laying them out, I had to decide what to do next. I knew I had to make two more blocks to fill in the two corners, but some sort of sashing was in order here, to separate all those stripes from each other!

More pictures to come!

Happy Stitching!
