Well, first I spy quilt is pieced. Linus has sent a special plea for teen sized quilts and I’m thinking about adding either a border or another row of blocks to make this one just a bit longer.
This is such a cheerful quilt and Rob’s already tried to claim it. I really hadn’t talked to him much about it. He was looking at it and pointing out all the different things this morning and I explained the concept of the “I Spy” quilt and that all those different things are the whole point.
And, Barb did such a good job of fussy cutting these. There’s a bit of everything here.
Badges and basketball players and tractors and boats.
Butterflies and people and fish and numbers.
And, chickens and jelly beans and basketballs and baseballs and bears and even a bluejay.
Fun to make, fun to play.
Barb sent enough squares for more than one quilt. I thought that maybe I could move some old stash and try some speed piecing and I played with a pattern and this is what I ended up for the next one.
Same quilt, but with just two fabrics used in the borders.
Does anybody else draw patterns on sticky notes?
I swear I was listening in that meeting yesterday.
Be well. Have a great Friday. I RSVP’ed for tomorrow’s Linus meeting this morning, so I’m committed to get out there and do things with people.
