SWIM & the Chunky Alphabet

Next to quilting, my favorite summer activity is to swim!

So I made myself a mini quilt using my new chunky alphabet!

Excited to announced that my Chunky Alphabet is now all 26 (lower case) letters strong, all foundation paper piecing!!

Pattern is for individual letter blocks only - you can assemble anyway you want and spell out your favorite words or the name of someone special! All letters finish at 5'' tall; widths vary but most are 4'' wide.  (See table overall block widths.)    

Visit my Craftsy store and get your very own copy of the Chunky Alphabet! 

Foundation paper piece patterns can be found two to a page - click to see sample photo.

I've got lots of plans for these letters - the first of which was my swim mini.  Perfect for summer!  If I'm not at my sewing machine, you can find me at the pool.  (In my dreams anyway!)

I'll be linking up with Finish it Up FridaySew Cute Tuesdays, , Freemotion by the River,   WIP Wednesday's,  Let's Bee Social,  and Midweek Makers.

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. I love to swim as well, in fact just came back from the swimming pool. As soon as I get some money I will buy your chunky alphabet, love it!

  2. Brilliant Patty! Thank you for the alphabet - just what I need for a granddaughter's quilt that is in the planning stage...

  3. I really love your letters...I've always wanted to make a word quilt! And they are paper pieced!!!

  4. Nice pattern Patty, lots of options for fun :)

  5. Love the chunky letters - well done! Thanks for linking up at Midweek Makers

  6. LOve all the chunky letters. These will be so much fun to play with.

  7. Fun, fun, fun! I couldn't resist purchasing the patterns! Thanks!

  8. Thank you, Patty, for making the entire alphabet! I purchased mine from Craftsy tonight and tomorrow I am featuring your QAL and my completed wallhanging. Your instructions were the BEST I've seen. Great QAL!!!
