  • I Spy Baby Quilt Plan

    This week I played with layouts. I photographed each one and then viewed them on my computer. I sent the pics to my grandchildren for their input, but they could not tell much from the photographs. In the end I gritted my teeth and made a decision. On another day I labeled each block row by row. At that time I discovered that I had pieced some of the

  • I Spy Baby Quilt Components

    Yesterday and today I have sewn together the hexagon/two triangle components for this quilt. Now I must wait for the UGA fabric to arrive so I can make a component with that. I must also wait for a chance to schedule time with my grandchildren. They are great at laying out quilt tops. They have great ideas on how things should go together. Also, I want

  • I Spy Baby Quilt Triangles

    Today I got all the triangles (188) and half triangles (24) cut from yet another piece of fabric from my stash.

  • I Spy Baby Quilt Stash Busting

    The past few days I have been carefully going through my stash to find 86 hexagons and 10 half-hexagons. There are only two repeats and those were to finish the nursery rhyme 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star". It took two trips through the stash to get this done. The first time through I was pickier about print size and value contrast. That yielded

  • I Spy Baby Quilt

    Today I started planning a baby quilt for my nephew and his wife. I've wanted to make an I spy quilt for some time. This will be the one. I will use the pattern that has hexagons connected by equilateral triangles. I ordered two pieces of fabric and the batting today. These will be for the back and binding. The rest of the fabric will come from

  • Sampler Quilt 3

    This quilt is now basted and ready to quilt. I tried the Sharon Shambert basting method. I set up two utility tables in the garage so that the entire width of the quilt could be spread out AND my two pieces of wood stretched across the entire width of the quilt. Even though I will be machine quilting I used wash away thread and basted it using Sharon
