Stitch Sew & Show ~ Week 13 ~#AtoZChallenge2021

 Welcome to Stitch Sew & Show ~ Week 12

Here is my uppercase F Block.

For April I am joining in this blogging fun:

#AtoZChallenge Started Here on April 1st

I am making one uppercase block per day.

Plans are to make a twin size quilt "I Spy A-Z Quilt"

using my novelty scrap stash.

For April I am posting a quilting related post each day, except Sundays.

F is Fabric ~ I love fabric!

I have a lovely large stash and I love every scrap of it.

My blog is an ongoing testimony to my fabric love.

F is for Fussy Cutting

Fussy Cutting is using a template or ruler to cut a particular motif out of fabric to create a focal point in a quilt block. 

All my POTC Blocks are Fussy Cut ~ Read Here

Here is a layout for these fussy cut pieces.

Wonderful blocks can me made when fussy cutting. 

F is for FPP

(Foundation Paper Piecing)

Foundation paper piecing in making quilts is done by sewing fabric to a printed paper foundation

This method can be used to create extremely precise points and shapes.

This block is also "fussy cut."

This is for my Ventura Quilt ~ Started Here

The fabrics in all these blocks are fussy cut,

... as are the blocks in my companion Trinket Quilt.

Sadly, both of these quilts are UFOs.

I was making good progress until I travelled on vacation and I never caught up.

I need to finish these beautiful starts ... hopefully this year!

I am making my upper case blocks with a jelly roll and yardage from the  ...

Spotted collection by Zen Chic for Mada Fabrics 

and my Spelling Bee book by Lori Holt.

It is looking like I will have enough of each jelly roll strip to also make the lower case block for each letter. 

I plan to use the charm pack for the scrappy I-Spy setting.

Lovely blocks! I like to fussy cut, for the runner scraps challenge hosted by Joy at The Joyful Quilter, I made a flamingos mug rug, so fun to make! And I love FPP too ;))
