I Spy Wall Quilt... Phase 1
I started working on the I Spy wall quilt for my office. I decided I would paper piece letters to form the words "I Spy...". I began working on this a few evenings ago. It was really tricky to pick the colours for the letters since I have not started the actual quilt yet. I also sought Husband's opinion. We both agreed on the choice. So far it just says "IS" but trust me, it will say "I Spy..." in a few days. If you look really closely, you can see that the blue print used for the letters has wee teddy bears. That in itself could be a total I Spy challenge. I have not done any paper piecing before other than hexies so this is all very interesting. Last evening, I proudly held up the almost finished "S" only to realize that I had sewn it together reversed. Good grief. It really is time to get back to school. I found the patterns on Quilter's Cache. And Quilter's Cache is totally awesome if you have not checked it out before.
It was a very flowery day out in the garden so I leave you with some lovelies.
