Spell it with Fabric- setting directions

It seems so sad that today is the final day of the Spell it with Fabric blog hop.
By now you have 26 letters, 9 numbers and some fun punctuation patterns.
You have received some ideas on different things the designers did with their letters.
Edyta put her daughters name on the back of the quilt with some of the letters.
Bunny Hill appliqued on top of her pieced letter.
Minick and Simpson appliqued their letter and made it into a zippered bag.
Fig Tree pieced her letter using mini charms.
Kathy Schmitz embroidered on her letter.
French General turned her letter into a welcome banner.
Me and My Sister crack me up with their post.
Each of the designers made an extra block and we assembled it into our very own
special ABC quilt for the President of Moda.
These are just a few of the ways the ABC patterns could be used.
What was your favorite use of the letters?
The finished ABC blocks measure 8 x 10 before adding sashing.
Here are the instructions in case you missed them.
 The filler blocks are 8 x 8 so some spacers are added so they are the same size as the ABC’s. Use the filler blocks supplied here or create your own. Link here.
The finished quilt as shown here measures 59 1/2″ x 68 1/2″.
Download the final layout instructions, here.
Are you sad the hop is over? No worries, the designers are already working on their next hop project. The Entire Moda team hope you enjoyed this project as much as we did creating it for you. Now is the time to circle back to each of the designers blogs where all the giveaways are announced.
see if you were one of the lucky ones.

That pillow is simply stunning – love, love, love it! My choices for fabric run the gamut from civil war repros to the simple red, white and black. It depends on what my plans are for the quilt – for instance, once granddaughter wants all pink, another purple. I just go with the flow. 🙂 blessings, marlene
Bundle will be shipped april when this new collection arives.

  1. Thanks for the blog hop. It was interesting and inspiring to meet the designers. I’m thinking hard about what to make using the letters.

  2. thanks so much moda and your awesome designers …you all have my dream job…..this is the third blog hop I have followed ….friendship quilt along….size matters….to be honest when I saw this was letters my first thought was boring….but once I saw all the ideas and watched the video of all the designers I fell in love….I particularly liked sandy gervais’ quilt that she reduced and made into a wall hanging….is there a formula that you could share for those of us that may want to try that…thanks again

      1. my sister tells me to subtract the seam allowance divide in half and add back the seam allowance….I will give it a whirl…..anybody know differently on this

  3. Congrats to all the winners. I have had fun blog hopping, meeting new people and saving all those great letters, numbers and punctuation marks.

  4. Thanks to all of you at Moda who made this possible! Must be a whole lot of work but it must be so fun to work for Moda!!! Looking forward to see what you creative people do next!! Of course we are all busy now working on our alphabet quilts!! Cheers, Colette

  5. I was so surprised to see MY name. Can’t wait to get the gift. I have done a few blog hops over the years and have never won. This time I printed everything twice and am mailing everything a little at a time to my BFF in Idaho. Extending your blog for extra FUN. She should get her first envelope today. Thank You!!

  6. What a fantastic hop! Thanks to everybody who contributed. But – I looked and looked again through all the posts, I can’t seem to find the R ;-( Can somebody help me out, please?

  7. Hi, I have all the letters but R. I was unable to find it. I think it should have been on the Moda blog. But the site has changed.

    1. Which letters are you having trouble locating? The following link is to the setting instructions and contains links to all the blogs with all the letter instructions. http://blog.modafabrics.com/2014/02/spell-it-with-fabric-setting-directions/

      You will need to visit each blog in the list to download the instructions for each letter. If you need additional help locating a specific letter, please let us know what letter and we can direct you to the appropriate location. Have fun!

  8. It is Sheryl again. Anyone going to contact me for my address? I left Lissa an e-mail on Saturday.

  9. I started with alphabets a little late (they are SO neat) and I have been able to get all of them except Y (Barbara Brackman has taken it down) and I (I just can’t locate it on Basic Grey). Will someone please help. Thanks.

  10. I also started the alphabet late. I am trying to get the punctuation download. When I use the link on Gina Martin’s website, it is broken and leads to a Moda Home page that I don’t have permissions for. TIA.

  11. Yes, I’m late. Don’t know why or how, but I am. If I go back through all the blog posts can I still find the letters? I will do that if that’s what it takes. Thanks.

  12. Have all the posts been taken down? I would like them again. Especially W, T, B, C and P. Thank you!

  13. Hi ther. I’ve been through the blogs several times and still haven’t got these couple letters. Can you please help. Want to make this gorgeous quilt now that daughters wedding is over and finding moda site without pages available. Thx heaps. Sara. Letters G K T Q Y
