WIKIPEDIA Definition – The at sign, @, normally read aloud as “at”, also commonly called the at symbol or commercial at, and less commonly a wide range of other terms, is originally an accounting and commercial invoice abbreviation meaning “at the rate of” (e.g. 7 widgets @ £2 = £14). In recent years, its meaning has grown to include the sense of being “located at” or “directed at”, especially in email addresses and social media, particularly Twitter.
I used a bella solid and a royal blue with white pin dot for my @ sign.

I wonder if there is a stat on how many times a day the @ sign is used. We all have email addresses that would not go through without the @ sign. Then there is the whole game of tag on Facebook when you add the @ sign before someone’s name so the post will show up on their page. I just thought this symbol would be so fun to enlarge and make a big quilt.
Following the instructions from the #spellitwithfabric blog hop, I enlarged the shapes from Gina Martin’s post and the sizes and directions are shown above. If there is one of the shapes you want enlarged, leave a comment by Thursday March 13th, I will choose one to enlarge and post the directions here on March 17th.
