Alphabet quilt: a finish

A friend of mine has a daughter who is a teacher. She wanted to give her an alphabet quilt to hang on her classroom wall.  The first thing that came to mind was the Moda Blog Hop that was fairly recently.  Unfortunately, all those blocks were about 8" tall and lead to a large quilt. Luckily, Primative Gatherings put together a miniature version of those patterns and you can get it here

She chose a primary color scheme for the quilt and requested the "HI" stand out". I think the green does that but subtly without looking like it doesn't belong.

All the fabrics were from my stash (except the red border. Somehow I'm very lacking in red).  And what's best is that we barter services for this quilt. My friend loves to garden and I seriously dislike it. She came over and helped my husband with the (way too many) flower beds that we have. If you follow me on IG you may remember me posting my poison ivy? Yeah, I felt a bit guilty and tried to help out. Never again!

Anyway, possibly the best part of this quilt is the fabric on the back! Can't see that? Here's a close up.

This adorable fabric looks like the writing paper we learned how to print on!  It's called Animal ABC's and it's by Penguin and Fish.
