ABC quilt for Scott and Kelly

A good friend of my husbands and mine Scott Mathews and his partner Kelly are expecting a little baby boy in December so I have decided to make them by Alphabears quilt.  This is a fav of mine, having already made it for my first gransdon Mitchell, and a friend at works Jane. 

 Both versions, I forgot to photograph.  Therefore I thought I would go one more on this and document the making of it until the finished result.

Last night I went through my blue and yellow stash and chose an array of fabrics to use.

I then traced the pattern on visoflex (not sure if thats what its called, but quilters know what I mean), and ironed the cut out shapes onto fabric.

As my hubby Serg settled down to watch Adelaide thrash Essendon, I settled down to labouriously cut out the shapes. 
Today, I have to dig out some back ground fabric and iron them all in place and then begin the applique process.
