5 inch FUN!

Today I'm working away on my I SPY quilt.
Carla had a swap in the summer and I played along.
I even had a bunch of blocks pieced together....
but I never finished it!

It needed a few more 5" I spy squares...
I'm sure
You know how that goes.....
You set it aside waiting to get more fabric...
and then.....
it gets forgotten! :/

My little girl's birthday is NEXT week
and I would love to get this one done for her!!!

Most eight year olds would not really appreciate this quilt..
but my little girl has some developmental delays and
I KNOW
She's going to have some fun with this one!!
;)
It makes my stitching time
VERY happy
thinking about her sweet disposition
and
her enjoyment of LIFE!!!

I'm kind of proud of myself for piecing some of the blocks
that needed to GROW to be 5 inches!
Isn't that owl cute???

and these big trucks needed a little whimsy as they GREW!
;)

One of my VERY favorite blocks!
My DREAM vacation home!

O.K.
All I need now is a small white border....
a lot of little scrappy pieces around the outside....
Quilting....
Binding.....
Can I get it together by next week????

I think I can...I think I can...I think I can.....

  2. I haven't had the occasion to make an I Spy yet but would like to someday. Your little girl will really enjoy looking for all the figures. It will be a great conversation piece. My kids used to love the Where's Waldo books and this is similar.
    good luck getting it finished!
