Spelling Bee Sew Along



I'm so excited to be part of the Spelling Bee Book Sew Along by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet for Fat Quarter Shop. 
There is so much to LOVE about this fun book that includes all upper and lower case letters. It also features complete instructions for 100 letters, numbers, punctuation and picture blocks in 6" and 12" block size, plus 18 quilt projects!


 I used "Yes Please" fabric line by 
The color palette is black and off white with a touch 
of rose gold. The simplicity of the colors lends itself to sophistication.


I have a fun project planned with the blocks I will be making. 
Right now I have my binding by Vintage Door wrapped around my Binding Baby which is made by Shari for Doohikey Designs.


You can see how adorable my Binding Baby is and how she keeps my binding from unraveling while waiting to be used. 


My letter today is "lowercase o". It is super quick and easy. I have made several blocks as I am preparing to make something fun once I finish my other letters for the Spelling Bee Blog Tour.


"o" is for opal, outgoing, optimistic, orange, octopus, oxygen, ocean and owl.


It symbolizes a circle which represents the notions of totality, wholeness, original perfection, the Self, the infinite, eternity, timelessness, all cyclic movement.
***
 I like to think of a circle as never ending LOVE!


Now to get busy on my other blocks!

Happy Sewing!

This is the million dollar quilt. Each block represents the story behind a letter from her son who served a 2 year mission. Don't you think that is such a great idea. I love it.






I love all the hand embroidery on this quilt. It will be a classic.








This was a block exchange quilt. She did a great job of her colors and arranging of blocks. I think this quilt turned out great.







Vintage Sew Along Little Deer Block

There is nothing better than Christmas Sewing to get you in the holiday mood. The Vintage Christmas Book can be purchased through Fat Quarter Shop here All the adorable Christmas Blocks are designed by Lori Holt and you can see more of her work here.

This is a must have book in your library and there are so many projects and ideas to make...not only for the holidays but for year round quilts that can be used for any occasion.

I made the 6" Little Deer Block using Poppie Cottons first fabric line called Prairies Sisters which you can find here.

I wanted to use this cute deer block in a project bag.


All I did was add a 1" white border and a 2" colored border ...added a zipper to the top... some quilting and magically I have this cute project bag!

Please be sure to check out all the other designers here.
Happy Sewing!
