This fabric tic-tac-toe board from During Quiet Time made a lovely teacher’s gift for the end of the school year. In fact, Amy’s kids loved it so much they requested one of their own! You can read how she made it here, and if you’re new to 9-patch quilt blocks, click here for a tutorial!

Alphabet Embroidered Mini-Quilt Tutorial

ofpatternsandtutorialsabc-embroidery

I love the simplicity of this alphabet mini-quilt. It’s about the size of a sheet of paper and would be lovely in a nursery or child’s playroom, or perhaps hanging above a preschooler’s writing station. Orange Flower Patterns and Tutorials shares a how-to and includes the embroidery pattern for the letters. If you need help with the binding, check out this tutorial from Crazy Mom Quilts.
