I thought I probably should explain how the quilts are being designed for the book and sorry, but this is the only one I will show you… the rest will be in the book.
I need the design to be simple so that a Grandma can make the name sake for each of her Grandies.
This is A for Attitude, Apple trees, Applique and Action…
It doesn't look much yet but I'm about to go to bed after one hectic day and I'll do the rest in the morning.
The quilts will feature fabric designed from the letters, so for instance the blue fabric in the some of the blocks will look like the knitted sweater, there will even be holes in it…
The red and white will be the same as the legs and there will be illustrated applique blocks of unusual apple trees in some of the blocks.
Set off by the green apple leaves around the border….
The proportions are right, because I drew it on EQ6 and converted it to a pen drawing… so when you get the pattern it won't be wobbly like this one….

I have been drooling over your letters forever and cannot wait for your book to be published. Do you have an anticipated date for it’s debut? What joy to have you designing a fabric line also! I love the whimsey and joy in your work.
I too cannot wait until your Alphabet book is out. I am going to make it for me. I love it. peggy in missouri
Robin, I hope to put the finishing touches to it in the next month…
Yes ther is a crossover from Adult Whimsy to childhood interest.
I feel as though I have been waiting for a lifetime to see the whole alphabet.
Now I know it is getting closer I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve! (It’s gonna be a long night waiting!)
PS I enjoyed the trip, welcome home!
Thanks, it will be here soon…
Hi Pam, after seeing some of the samples in Chicago, I too can’t wait for the book.
Hey, thanks Deborah.
