About that I-Spy...

My blog has been very quiet, right? It's reflective of my holiday season really, the weeks seemed to whisper past. I'm starting the new year with a bit of catch-up, before I can truly embrace 2017 and a quilty goal or two...
I-Spy Cabbage was completed and shipped in time for Christmas, however I missed the OMG Linkup over at Elm Street Quilts! I am so excited that Patty has found a way for people like me to still feel like winner's, lol! This year, she is awarding an entry for goals that do not make the intended finish line.
I hopped onboard Val's I-Spy Charm Swap last year, then added additional 3.5" squares for a 45"x51" finish. The quilt was not planned; I began by making four-patches and came up with a layout from there. Four leftover four-patches are highlighted on the back.
I finished the quilting before I realized I had not put the label on. Just the way I roll lately. Even though I had made one, I ended up writing directly on the light gray area. Terri seemed to like the idea to add all her Grandchildren's names/bd as they come about. So now I need to send her a Pigma...
and what's a Pigma without a zip-pouch? wink wink ;)

  4. I love seeing all the creative ways people are doing the backs of their quilts. This is a really fun quilt. Was it made for someone special?

  5. How fun - I participated in the swap and see some of my blocks! And interesting to note, I had not thought about the blocks until just two days ago when I was 'organizing' my sewing room and ran across them. Something else to put on my To Do List. I don't have a little someone to give an I Spy quilt to yet, but you just never know. Love yours!

  7. It turned out beautiful! And I love how you used your extra blocks on the back. What a neat idea to add her grandkids' names to the back! I Spy an I spy pouch in her/your future :)

  8. Very fun I spy. Sometimes the sewing just doesn't keep up with the speed of the blogging world. Hope your new year has gotten off to a good start.
