Spelling Bee Quilt Blocks

Hooray for Saturdays!  Boy have I been looking forward to today.  We've had a busy week and I feel like I've spent most of it in my car driving my kids here and there.  Isn't Summer supposed to be relaxing?? Sheesh!

Today I get to share with you a couple of blocks from the Spelling Bee Quilt Along that's been happening all year - hosted by Lori Holt & The Fat Quarter Shop

This week the quilt along is highlighting the number 2 and number 3 blocks.  I made mine using fabrics from the Bake Sale 2 line from Lori Holt & Riley Blake Designs.  That red print is one of my favorites!  (But you know I'm a sucker for great red prints, right?)  

This book is a fun one - filled not just with 100 different block patterns, but also six quilt patterns and another dozen or so mini quilts.  And each block pattern has instructions for both a large AND a small block.  

Remember the scrappy apple mini quilt I made back in march?  Those adorable apple blocks were found in the Spelling Bee Book!

Here's a view of each of my number blocks for this week:

For the number 3 block I decided to use the green print as the background.  Kinda fun!
