Spelling Bee Saturdays: the letter Z



I am back on the school bus
again this week for the next 
(and last) letter
in the alphabet!

Today is the letter
"Z"

The letters in the book can either be made 
in 6" or 12" six size. 
I have been making the 12" letter blocks.


They also are in uppercase and lowercase
like on the cover of the book.

Spelling Bee

I have only been working on the uppercase 
letters... but I will go back and make
the lowercase ones along with the fun
little blocks...
like the globe!


Thank you Fat Quarter Shop for hosting
this quilt along!
I have enjoyed this Spelling Bee book 
by Lori Holt so much!
Each time I make a new letter...
I am amazed at how easy they are to make, 
of course, 
thanks to Lori's cleverness with creating
these blocks!

This book is jam-packed with 
projects that are so cute
and fun! 
If you don't have a copy of this in your
library... 
you should get one!
Inspirational Home Quilt Happy Spelling Bee Saturday everyone! If you are sewing along with us... We are on row three of the Alphabet Sampler! If y...

Aside from the projects in the book... you can make up
your own fun word quilt!

Goin' on a Spelling Bee trip!  I'm all packed for a vintage vacation:) This is my "Vintage Life" quilt from the book:) รข¤#vintagelifequilt #spellingbeebook #globeblock

Travel. Vacation. Adventure. Summer. Explore.

I like having a project to chip away at...
a little bit here
 and there... 
but don't worry...





There are several more weeks in the quilt along!
It does not stop with "Z"!

I hope you continue to follow along
Here is a list of who will be sharing in
the weeks to come:

Remember those who have served and sacrificed.

Spelling Bee Quilt Along: Uppercase "Y"


Good morning sweet people!

I always feel like jumping out of bed on
Saturday's during the 
Fat Quarter Shop
Spelling Bee Sew Along!

It's been so much fun seeing these alphabet blocks
being made, along with the extra blocks
you see in the quilt!
I seriously love the little camper and
the vintage camera! 
I think I need to make those next and
add the letters V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N
and make it up into a cute pillow!


  Today the letter is
"Y"







There are 100 letters, numbers, punctuation
 and picture blocks in this book...

and you have 2 size options for your blocks!
 Plus, there
 are 18 quilt projects in the book as well!

The uppercase blocks have been so easy to piece!
This one was no exception.

I am using a collection of Lori Holt fabrics for my blocks
along with some First Blush fabrics I had in my stash.
The fabrics play nice together.





Y is for yellow!
Y is for YOU!


YOU
 can get a copy of this book here, if you don't already own it.
Also, just so you know, I happen to see the gift set collection of
Lori Holt books on sale at Fat Quarter Shop this week.


The Spelling Bee Quilt Along started back in
October and will continue through August!
So now is a great time to start if you haven't already
joined in.
I find good inspiration on Instagram...
so...

sure to look for the
