Spelling Bee Saturday Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop

It is Spelling Bee Saturday with Fat Quarter Shop and Lori Holt! I'm excited to be sharing letter M today.  The M block was super easy to piece as Lori's patterns are always clear and well written. My M block finishes at 8.5" x 12.5" (there is a smaller size too at 4.5" x 6.5").  The Spelling Bee Book has 26 letters (upper and lower case) in 2 sizes, plus punctuation, numbers, picture blocks, quilts, and mini is amazing...more in a bit!

Let's get ready to start sewing M...


I chose to add borders to my M block to make it a 16" square.  Next, I added a zippered backing so I can use it as a mini quilt or a pillow....I love having options! 

For the quilting- I chose to make loops in the M and stipple the background...I love it. My goal this year is to try new quilting designs!

Sometimes sewing magic happens when using striped fabric for binding...perfectly matched mitered corner....what a happy surprise!
