Let’s Bee Social #179

Posted on: May 31st, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!
So glad to have you join us for the Let’s Bee Social weekly linky party!

This week I am working on so many things!

First up, I designed a new pieced Alphabet pattern.
Here are some ideas of how the letters can be used to personalize any quilt.


The Truck block will be coming soon! These blocks finish at 9″ tall by 16″ wide.

The Alphabet letters could be used to personalize one of these quilts….

The Love Birds pattern can be found here.

And the Ducks in a Row pattern can be found here.


You could use the letters to make a cushion, a placemat, or a quilt.
What would you use the Alphabet letters for?



Now… It’s your turn for Show and Tell!!!

What have you been working on?

    Lorna, what a great combination of upper and lower case letters, just perfect for a baby/toddler quilt like the ducks or trucks! Thanks for hosting!

    Thank you for hosting the link up as always =) There can never be enough variety in letters for quilts, so thank you for those too.

  3. Nancy J says:

    The alphabet, capitals and lower case, that is fantastic. I can see that every grandchild or child, or even the older Mums and Dads will have personalised sewing just for them.

  4. Oh my – just when I'm making another Bumper2Bumper quilt because I just love those car blocks – you show another soon-to-be-available truck quilt design…..and alphabet blocks. Beautiful! Love how you can spell names, but also a little phrase on a quilt. Now you are getting my ideas going :)!

  5. Your creative juices are really flowing this week! Love the trucks and the letters.

  6. Kate says:

    I've used words in a couple of quilts. What's better than having your name on a quilt?

  7. Ha, ha great minds think alike! I just updated my Alphabet quilt pattern. Mine is applique letters though.

  8. Hi Lorna! Your letters are fantastic and everyone loves letters! They can be a great add to your other wonderful patterns or just letters as you said. Thank you for the party! Have a lovely day! x Teje

  9. Hello Lorna!It has been a long while since I last linked up. Moving house twice within 5 months has had a big impact on my life. But… I am back! I have been very productive these last couple of weeks so I have linked up with three posts! Yay, I love quilting!!!HugsEsther

  10. Oh I am so glad to see your alphabet . And great trucks too

    A sweet message to my grandchildren. I love the alphabet letters. May have to get those. Thanks for sharing your talent with us. poladydwd(at)yahoo(dot)com

    I love these letters, but I love that truck even more! I was on vacation over the weekend and was day-dreaming about starting your bumper to bumper pattern; now I will have to choose cars or trucks first! Your designs are so great, I really enjoy them.
