A great big @

40″ x 40″

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,[1][2][3][4] 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.

    Percentage sign, please… no, the question mark. No, no, the percentage sign. It's so hard to choose. I'm looking forward to see which punctuation mark wins.

    Love it. But what Amy said. I can't make up my mind either. Oh wait!!! Do I have a mind worth making up? Big question that! Far to big for me that's for sure
