summer class

I started a quilt called Cuppaz by Jan Mullen years ago. These unfinished blocks have been laying around for a long time now. Inspired by Tonya's Summer class I desided to give it a try - piecing letters to complement the blocks. After a lot of different layouts had been tested it ended up like this:
For now the top is basted. Not sure how to quilt it yet. It was fun making the letters - got to make more of those. Designing as you go is also a good choise, espesially with old and abandoned blocks like these. Still can't believe they're actually put into a quilt after all this time...
