I picked up a fat quarter bundle of Bella Solid and some matching Aurifil threads. This particular bundle is no longer available but there is a similar one called Hometown Christmas Stash that is even on sale! This is a great way to try out the Bella solids and Aurifil threads if you haven’t used them yet.
Fat Quarter Shop Bella Solids and Aurifil threadI have also been making a few other blocks and I ended using some of the leftover Tea Rose Bella Solid that I have from the Bella Skillbuilder Quilt Along that I finished in February. There are links in that post to each of the blocks that I made. I finished piecing my quilt and I have sent it out to have it quilted. I’ll be sure and share my quilt when it comes back in 3 months.Bella Solid blocks and fabric Connie
Here is my Uppercase T with binding on it. I thought I was all done until I realized I forgot to do any free-motion quilting on the T.

  1. These are fun blocks and suited to a “T” and “t”. They look great before you FMQ’d the letters but then afterwards they look even better. Your FMQ style really adds such dimension and personality. Happy Alphabet Blocks…<3

  2. I love Lori Holt’s designs. I have this book too, and just finished a pillow top with granddaughter Olivia’s name on it. I need to give it a little quilting before adding the envelope back to finish it. And I’m planning to do ones for the other grandkids too. Maybe save them for next Christmas.

  3. Very cute. It looks great as a stand alone with the small t.
