I Spy...

Oh my goodness.  I had an idea last week.  I thought I really should crank out an I Spy quilt for a donation to my school's spring carnival.  I thought they would then be able to use it either as a raffle or in a silent auction.  Yesterday morning, I started cutting 4" squares from my I Spy stash.  I have a tub of just I spy scraps and then I have a whack of novelty prints in the great wall of fabric.   

Eek!  I randomly stitched the squares into 4 patch blocks and started throwing them up on the design wall.  Then I cut some more squares.  There are some fabric repeats in the quilt but only if they print allowed for different things to be spied in the square.  Oh man.  This was a whole lot of cutting and a whole lot of fussy cutting but there is something very satisfying about simple squares stitched together.

I plan to finish off the last few blocks this morning and then decide on borders and a back.  I love spring break!!!!  Linking up with Judy's Design Wall...


  1. It's going to be a great i-spy quilt. I know you'll raise a lot of money for your school.
