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.

  1. Love your letter! Quilter's Cache is the same website that I used for my 5 point star! Great site isn't it! I spent some time this morning cutting some fabrics for you - they will go into the post tomorrow. Hopefully they won't take too long to get to you.
