Scrabble Quilt
 
Supplies: 1 Scrabble panel, shown above left, 4 Scrabble squares
                   2 Scrabble tiles panels, about 1 1/3  yards
                    2 1/4 yds. backing fabric
                    54" x 54" batting
Note: Use 1/4" seams and press them as you go.
 
First, cut the four Scrabble board pieces out. They will measure about 16" square.
 
Cut the tiles fabric in 5 strips of WOF x 2 tiles wide ( approx. 6.5"). Use 3 of these strips horizontally for the top, middle and bottom pieces. The other 2 strips will be for the outer border pieces, right and left. With remaining tile fabric, cut pieces shown in picture #1 and sew these together to make two columns of five tiles. These will be placed between the Scrabble squares in the middle. Picture #2 shows this.
 
Sew a row using one Scrabble square, one pieced tiles section and a second Scrabble square. Repeat with the other 2 Scrabble squares and tile piece.
 
Sew one long WOF tiles strip between the two rows you have made. Be careful to center it how you would like it to look, sew it in place, and then trim excess if any. The tiles strips will end up being about 38" long. Use the other two long pieces for the top and bottom in the same manner. 
 
Using remaining tile fabric and the 2 remaining strips, piece the left and right borders. They will be about 50" long when complete. Place them so the letters face in the direction you would like them to be; ours is facing outward.
Sew them onto the main body of the quilt.
 
For the backing, cut your fabric to be about 54" x WOF. This will leave another piece of fabric 27" x WOF. From this piece, cut (2) 10" x 27" pieces. Sew them together to be 10" x 54". Now sew this long strip to the first piece so that it makes a 54" x 54" square.
 
The remaining backing fabric can be cut into strips to make the binding by cutting (8) 2" x 27" strips and sewing them together as you would to make binding.
 
Sandwich the quilt using the top, batting and backing. Quilt in any way you like and attach binding.
