Loving Spelling and Stringing Along :)

So you might know, Moda is currently having three very laid back Quilt Alongs.  I shared my Moda Love quilt tops I finished last Friday and I had so much fun with them!!!  And it had me thinking of the Quilt Alongs and how I had done the Strings and Love, but not the Spelling.   (Well, not recently, I made this ABC quilt and tutorial and this ABC quilt a while back)  So I had to laugh when I Cynthia asked us to make Spell It blocks for our Bees Knees  group this month ;)    I got J and K. 

J went together super fast, but of course, K has a few more seams.  And to complicate things just slightly, there was a piece of fabric missing in my little mail package.   It happens, and I knew Cynthia mentioned she cut these out a while back so I was worried she wouldn't have any more of the background fabric.

So I got super creative sewing together all of the leftover scraps from my stitch and flip corners and managed to just barely piece together 8 mini triangles to come up with a 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" piece.   I am glad it is a super busy background so all of that tiny piecing just blends in.   Yippee!!

And I was so thrilled to have my Spelling blocks done, and my Moda Love Quilt top done, it just felt like I should do some Strings as well ;)  So I pulled out a bunch of Orange Selvages and away I went.   I made a tutorial of Sewing with Selvages back here, and then a second tutorial on how I make these Stars with the Selvage squares right here ;)  This is one of those long term projects, so I am sure I will be sharing more Selvage Stars over the next few months.   But I have to say, I sure like the orange one!!!! 

So in the last week I have done Moda Strings, Moda Love, and Spell it with Moda ;)  It's been a fun week for sure!!!!     Are you doing any of these Moda Quilt Alongs???
Pin It!
