Yellow I Spy top

Done! Well, all done but the borders, but the hard part is done! I really, really like it. What fun to see all those cute fabrics. The piecing was a real bear, and the directions give no help at all -- "stitch blocks together, stitch blocks into rows." Geesh! Matching hexagon points is a lot trickier than stitching up squares. I futzed, tore out, marked, pinned, restitched, over and over, and it came out okay (not great, but okay). Many points are right on, a few are as much as 1/8 inch off, and the rest are somewhere in between. I am less concerned than I normally would have been because the quilt has so much going on that you really don't notice those not-quite-right points. And what kid will care?
