Chunky Alphabet

Excited to announced that my Chunky Alphabet is now all 26 (lower case) letters strong, all foundation paper piecing!!

Pattern is for individual letter blocks only - you can assemble anyway you want and spell out your favorite words or the name of someone special! All letters finish at 5'' tall; widths vary but most are 4'' wide.  (See table overall block widths.)    

Visit my Craftsy store and get your very own copy of the Chunky Alphabet! 




I'm busy making mini's with these letters - SWIM is the first one.






Happy Stitching!

Balls in the Air (block 39) - this was a lot of work and there is quite a bit of bulk.  Not sure if I'll try to correct the mismatched seams.  They don't look as glaring in person and they do in this photo.
