December 1st! Can you believe it?! With Christmas just around the corner, I thought I’d put together a little listicle that is both practical and inspiring: 15 different ways (and counting) that you can use your Patch and Dot alphabet blocks (whether Blackletter or Ribbon Letters – these are all good projects for both).
And now, the list …
Alphabet quilt block project ideas
Most of these are made by you, so the links will take you to Pinterest or to each maker’s Instagram. I designed these alphabet quilt blocks specifically so that you can use them over and over again in your sewing projects, so it makes me so happy to see all the creative ways you’re using them to personalize your creations.
- Stockings (timely!)
- A baby quilt (the classic)
- Gift bags
- Wall hanging
- Craft show banner
- Personalized quilt coat
- Throw quilt
- Monogrammed makeup bags (you’ll need to shrink your FPP blocks down for this one)
- Pencil cases (same here)
- Project bag
- Initials and dates for a wedding quilt
- Graduation quilt
- Quilt with a message
- Personalized tote (I would add Blackletter Uppercase to this patchwork duffle by Knot & Thread)
