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...

If you are on Instagram be
sure to look for the 
hashtags:
#fqsquiltalong
#spellingbeesaturday


I hope you will take a look back and see what the bloggers
have made up with their letter of the alphabet!
As an added bonus
I have enjoyed seeing some new-to-me bloggers 
along the way!

So many words you could add to those two, to make a beautiful quilt. Whatever you end up deciding it’s going to be awesome. ” I’m curious, how many words do you want to put on your quilt? My Guild is putting on a wordy workshop in early fall, so I am planning a word quilt this winter. Mine will likely be Xmas related. I. Thinking mine will say “Piece on Earth”.
