About two days ago I received my pack of 200 different squares, and what a selection. I had already bookmarked the site so I could have a plan for my first I Spy quilt. The first thing I did was to pick out 88 from the bunch that might work for my grandson. I wasn't too fussy with my picks, just didn't choose things that were too girly.
Obsessively Stitching I thought that white would not be a good choice for a little boy, so I looked through my stash and came up with my red theme. I think it was a great choice. The pattern is based on a disappearing nine patch.
I have not even thought about what I will do for quilting on it, nor have I considered the backing or binding. I do know that I want to put a strip of 4" squares on the backside, but not sure just how I will do it.
So if you have not seen an I Spy Quilt before, I will have to post a new image when I have it totally done. I was just impressed that I got this far already. After I had it all pieced together, I sat down in my chair with a pencil and paper and tried to see how many items I could list. There are 88 squares, and I think I have 345 items that I came up with. I think I will have to include the list I came up with for the Mom, but she will have to make the decision on how she will use it.
Just another fun project I thought you might enjoy.
