Oda May Quilts Along

Are you still trying to decide on a layout for the ABC Birthday Quilt-Along? If you need some tips or are overwhelmed by the prospect of laying out a unique design, this post is for you.

Hello, folks! Oda May here. Today I’m sharing my layout for the ABC Birthday Quiltalong. I’m cheating a bit by using the original layout of the quilt and filling in the empty letter spots with filler blocks and background fabric.

Here’s a sketch of my design:

This quilt design sticks to the dimensions of the {original quilt} so I don’t have to recalculate the borders. Who doesn’t love that? The blocks have sashing already added and there is room for 30 letters and/or filler blocks (or just blank space!).  This quilt finishes at 59½”x68½”.

If you would like to use this layout as your jumping off point, download the Printer Friendly version below. It contains a blank sheet for sketching as well as important dimensions for the blocks and borders and will get you started on your design.
