On those cold winter nights in Alaska, I would make my grandchildren Alphabet Soup. This was a great opportunity to teach them the letters of the alphabet and the beginning sounds for each vegetable we put in the pot. My poor grandchildren had a kindergarten teacher for a grandmother! ha I had been thinking about making an alphabet childrens' quilt and this memory inspired me to make my alphabet soup quilt pattern. There is a large bowl and spoon at the bottom of the quilt and a can of soup at the top which pours out the letters and vegetables into the bowl below. I used capital and lower case letters and a few vegetables that most children are familiar with. The quilt has one center block that measures 32" x 41" with three borders making the overall size of the quilt 43" x 52". I hope you enjoy making this quilt and would love to see a picture when you have finished. Make sure you have a color cartridge in your printer so that you can see the fabric suggestions. Have fun!
