I am so proud of myself for keeping up with Little Letters. But N was the most difficult letter yet! I was close to leaving it out of the alphabet! But I persevered and won! Thank you for sharing these patterns!
I agree, Cheryl. But I almost gave the "boot" to the K but I managed a close resemblance to that letter. Perhaps Sheryl could add a measurement to let us know how far up the triangle on the right should be from the bottom of the 6 1/2" strip.
I have somehow acquired a batch of 1 1/2 strips of 30's repros and it has taken me this long to realize so many of your letter parts are that size strip. I may have just determined what I'm going to do with those strips!
I am keeping pace. Thank you!
This one took me a while but I finally got there. I found that if I placed the triangle points 5/8th from the ends it measured the correct size. Good luck
I put the triangle on the left side with 1/4" "tag" hanging over. I put the triangle on the right side with the tip of the triangle 1 3/8" from the bottom of the 6 1/2" strip. Then added the two side strips. Looks great - but it measures 4 1/2" long and only 4" wide?! My seam allowance is exactly 1/4" so I'm not sure what happened. I'm just going to add a 1/2" to the left side of the block - since I don't have any more of the fabric... oh well - keep sewing!!
I agree with all of the above. I love making these letters and have been keeping up. But, for some letters like the "K" and "N", I think a little more detail should go into the instructions, please. I finally got it, but I ripped it out 3 times. I'm making a boy and a girl quilt, so I kept the block that finally worked to use as a pattern for the second one. Thanks for starting this quilt along.
I made the "N" block twice and it came out only 4" wide. I agree that some of the blocks needed a little more instructions.
I'm on my way to an N block that's only 4" wide, too, Barbara... My thought (for my upcoming second attempt) is to make the triangles larger and trim them down to the necessary size. :-/
