The gap is narrowing I really need to finish something!
I bought some white with red 8th yard pieces and 3 reds to repair the Irish Chain I've been working on. I ended up replacing an 'abc' fabric that I had planned on putting in Andrew's 5 year old quilt and didn't think it would work for the 12 year old that is getting a quilt for Christmas. Then the big project that I'm collecting fabric for has a long story... but of course I'll tell it to you;
Years ago, about 23 years ago, I was expecting baby #4 and I thought it would be really cool to make her an 'I don't know what to call it but a quilt with pictures of things in it.' Anyway now I know it would have been called an 'ISpy' quilt that has been all the rage for a few years now. Well, 15 years ago I started making baby quilts for my nieces and nephews' babies as they each had their first...we have about 40 nieces and nephews and I quit after about the 12th. I got the idea to make that fabric up into an 'I Spy' quilt and I cut 1 piece out of each fabric...and decided that it was too much work and would save that project for my own grand babies instead of my sister's.
Fast forward to my quilt retreat when the Quilt Guild president announced that she is coordinating an 'I spy' exchange. Boy, am I jumping on that exchange.
100 blocks due in February to make a 50 x 50 quilt.... I have 4 children that will need to have an 'I Spy' quilt in their home; true one of them is only 12 but I believe in planning ahead. I wouldn't want to run out of projects, would I? So that's only 400 blocks! They are so simple I'm going to go make one so I can show you a finished block.
Easy Easy. But I'm not sure of the triangle size or I'd be whipping these out. Half of my blocks will have white corners and half will have black. It's going to be a great 4 quilts.... but don't hold your breath!
