Spell it with Words Quilt

Girls in the Garden - Spell it with Fabric quilt

I have another quilt to share with you today, it is Spell it with Fabric, a booklet I purchased at my local quilt shop and took me about a year to get around to make.  A very pleasant surprise, is how quickly it went together.  I made it at three monthly  quilting nights and then one night at home to set the blocks.
This pattern is also free through the Moda blog but you have to do some blog hopping to get a letter at different blogs.  Or you can purchase it here at Fat Quarter Shop if you would like

This quilt is made with a jelly roll or 2-1/2" strips.  I only cut one letter at a time and then would sew that letter.  I found this easy to do and no need to keep track of too many pieces.

Now some close-ups of the letters and small blocks:  L for Lori, right?

The back of the quilt.  I always have my daughter, Meredith pick out my quilting designs, she does a great job.  I tend not to venture away from one or two patterns, she is very good at changing it up.


One more close up of another block.

Here is one more shot of the quilt.  I just love the look of this quilt, it is so fun to make and I think it might look great in a little girl's room.

    1. Thanks, Kyle. I try to sew most nights for a couple of hours. This weekend I am helping my friend and we are doing a quilt retreat. Two days of sewing on some unfinished quilt projects, I am so excited. Plus, 2 of my daughters are coming for one day, it will be fun to spend the day with them.

  2. Very nice! I especially love the wavy lines of the quilting. Do you do the quilting yourself or have it done? It looks fantastic.
