  • I Spy Quilt

    I Spy Quilt is made of hexagons. Each hexagon and half-hexagon is different. All fabric came from my stash except the University of Georgia fabric supplied by my sister and the backing fabric.

  • I Spy Quilt is Done

    Whew! The Grand Nephew arrived last week so I have spent lots of time in the sewing room since then. I always make a storage bag for the quilts I gift. After that was made I still had some backing fabric so I combined that with a piece of cotton flannel and made a receiving blanket. Now there is very little to add to the stash! I shipped it all this

  • I Spy quilt is basted

    Today was the day. I got the quilt basted! I like to baste with water soluble thread in the basting pattern demonstrated by Sharon Schaumbert. This quilt was so small that I did not use my boards. I was able to use bull dog clips and the edges of my little sewing table. Not a minute too soon because the little guy arrived on Monday!

  • I Spy a starched quilt back

    Finally ironed the backing fabric yesterday. A phone call with my sister lit a fire. She had dinner with the mom to be last week and learned that her history was for babies to come early. I hope to get it basted tomorrow.

  • I Spy is ready to layer

    I have been sewing steadily the past week and the quilt top is together! Now for the tedious task of starching and ironing the backing. Thank goodness for audio books! It is easy to be "present" with no outside distractions or stimulations when I am piecing. It is akin to lace knitting in regard to "getting in the zone". Ironing

  • 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. In this case it was a white on white print left over from making the graduation quilt for this child's uncle. I had juuuust enough. There is a one inch strip left. I am so excited that I could get all of them! Also, I had a call from my
