Fat Quarter shop is still running a a quilt along to celebrate the Spelling Bee Book.
The Spelling Bee Book is by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet and features complete instructions for 100 letter, number, punctuation and picture blocks in two sizes plus 18 quilt projects!
The Sew Along will feature 88 of the blocks from the Spelling Bee Book! Lasting 44 weeks, the Sew Along will feature 2 blocks from the book each week. I was asked to join and and this is the third project I have made using the book. See the Fox Pillow and Butterfly Pillow!!!
Today is the Uppercase Letter J. I will admit I scrambled to grab it since all of my children's names start with the letter!
I was going to make something with one of their names, but I ended up choosing the word Joy.
It's a word that has encompassed our lives since the loss of our daughter in 2009 and I had to make it!
I used some leftover scraps from the Paperie Fat Quarter bundle I bought from the Fat Quarter Shop.
It made a fun pillow for my chairs in our formal room with the walls the color of the aqua print. It joined the Butterfly block Pillow I made last month!
I think they are so fun together!!
Pattern: Letters J, O, Y from the Spelling Bee Book by Lori Holt
