Lower Case Fabric Letter Finished

I finished up the lower case letters I was working on for Clayton. I adapted the tutorial I found at Happy Together. I used thick recycled fabric for the backing. It was upholstery swatches from sample books. and was thick enough that I did not use batting. Instead of cutting out each paper letter, I rough cut a rectangle letter, pinned the the 2 fabrics and the paper to the top. I sewed on top of the paper pattern and did not do any quilting. I carefully tore the paper off (folding first where able) . That saved me from cutting each letter out along the lines. Clayton is interested in letters and can sometimes identify them correctly(along with numbers). Very cool.
