Next time won't you................... Did I have you singing? That song has been stuck in my head all day!
At the beginning of the year, I started this block of the week making letters designed inside a 3" hexagon. The blocks are english paper pieced. Katja designed each letter, and then the numbers 0 through 9. Being a sucker for hexies and handwork, I started making blocks. Fast forward to now, and the top is done.
I more or less stuck with a few colours and used my scraps. Also, I chose to stagger my rows and used a grey solid for the triangles in between.
I'm working at removing all the paper templates. A good thing to do while the hockey game is on.
My plan is to stitch near the ditch diagonally and bind it with the zig zag edge because it will most likely hang on the wall in the nursery. This will not become another UFO : )

This is fabulous! A lot of work for sure, but oh, so beautiful!
It's really gorgeous! Love the scrappy letters.
It looks amazing Carla!
It looks amazing! I'm sure you're so happy with it...even if it's not totally done yet. =)
Beautiful, beautiful!! The grey is a perfect background!
Now I'm going to try and get that song out of my head! xo
Wow, that is amazing! Great colors!
Oh, man, now it's in my head!!! Lovely quilt - what a great kids' cuddler!
That looks fabulous!
Hi Carla! I have enjoyed following your letter project and now seeing all together I'm amazed! It is so beautiful! Did you make foundation piecing by hand or did you have papers as templates? This will be perfect for the nursery and children's room! x Teje
Hey, you did it! Awesome! I love the setting triangles and the star shapes that they form with the hexies. Looking forward to seeing this one finished!
This is really cool!!
It's truly wonderful, Carla! I think it would be awesome for a baby's room wall. I just can't get a quilt like this made between now and January, when grandson #4 is due! You did beautifully with this one. You can be very proud of yourself.
These look great Carla. I admire your patience. Philippa xx
You have done a grand job of getting this put together Carla! And it will the perfect addition to a nursery wall!
You didn't tell me this morning you were done! Looks great.
I love everything about this...the alphabet, the gray, the colors, the low volume, the hexies , and the triangles!! Great job and so perfect for a nursery!!!
This is so great! I have been anxiously watching as your did your letters each week, So great to see them all together :)
Very cool! Do you think Katja will offer the pattern as a collection? I only discovered you a few months ago and I'm not local.
This is an amazing quilt! I love the design, the colours and just wow!
This is FANTASTIC, Carla!! I love it!
Squeeeee! Absolutely fabulous! I love it :)
It's really a terrific quilt!
I was almost singing along, but I'm playing my new Willie Nelson album in the background. He was singing with Carrie Underwood.
I've loved this with each and every letter that you've blogged, Carla. The whole is the sum of all that cuteness and does not disappoint!! Wonderful!!!
Love this! With the colors you've selected, it will fit well into any nursery. Looks like a modern version of a stitched sampler.
Oh i do love this!
Wow this is really pretty :)
Well done carla. I am just starting the numbers and have been wondering (worrying) about a layout. Yours will be kept in mind. It looks great!!!
Sorry to yell, but THAT IS AMAZING! That gray fabric really makes the letters pop!
That is simply stunning! Really gorgeous.
So cool to see them all together like that! Great choice with the grey.
What a lovely idea for a nursery wallhanging. Beautiful.
It's looking fantastic. What a great way to showcase and enjoy your multicoloured scrap favourites.
Oh Carla, its fantastic!!!!!
This is fantastic! Congrats on finishing this top :)

Is there no quilting wonder that you can't do? Seriously, your work is beautiful and so wonderfully & artistically varied. Wow!!!
Looks fabulous Carla and yes, you did get me singing that song. Too cute!
I have enjoyed seeing these being made throughout the year. They look so wonderful together, you must be thrilled to bits with them!
Wow Carla, your hexi quilt turned out great! That's a lot of work. I like the bright colors on the text print fabric. Also I love the looks of those Tula Pink blocks in your previous post.
Abaolutely beautiful! Love all the pops of colour on the greys.
I have the pattern. I have not even started. This is just amazing! I think it might be a good winter project after the holidays.
Wow Carla, that looks so pretty! It sure is worth all the work!
Great job Carla...now you can teach the little ones their ABC's and 123's while napping at your house. The quilt is beautiful, once again.....inspiring!
Wow - this is gorgeous Carla!!! That gray text fabric is one of my very favorites - it goes great with the darker gray too :*)
Incredibly endearing! It will look great in a nursery!
Carla, this is so gorgeous! I love that the letters are scrappy and that fabulous LV text background. Wow. It looks so great! Can't wait to see how you will quilt this.
