A is for Ant : my ABC quilt-a-long week 1

Wow because I love the book " S is for Stitch" I decided to join Shush I'm Quilting in the ABC quilt-a-long.

I have decided to make my stitched blogs 4 and a half inches trimmed and the strips 2 inches by 6 inches giving me a slightly bigger quilt than the book with each block being 7 and a half inches. I am using Riley Blake Designs "Seaside" fabric for the quilt and I am making the boy version!  I am really happy with how block 1 turned out and now to get blocks 2 and 3 finished to catch up with the quilt-a-long.

I used a white on white patterned fabric for the embroidery squares to add some texture.

I think it is so cute!!
