Embroidered Alphabet Mini-Quilt

As much as we adore paper alphabet prints (and boy do we), this handmade embroidered alphabet has our attention at the moment. The juxtaposition of the simple, modern typography and the traditional handicrafts of embroidery and quilting is really lovely. Interested in making your own?

Karin of Orange Flower Sketchbook created this wonderful piece and has shared instructions and photos on her blog. She uses a rather unique method (involving freezer paper and your printer) to transfer the downloadable alphabet pattern onto fabric which is usually the more time-consuming (and, to our mind, least fun) part of any embroidery project.

Thanks, Karin!
