My I Spy is quilted and bound! All that's missing is a label and a trip to the post office to send it off. (I loaded this photo three times, and still blogger is putting it sidesways...sorry!) Click on the photo to get a better look at the fabrics.
Perhaps the most remarkable thing about this photo, however, is that it was taken outside! We have had two absolutely gorgeous days with temps in the 60's, plenty of sunshine, and just a whisp of a breeze.
I haven't posted much this week, but I have been very busy quilting. I bought some more black and white fabric for my Stroop quilt background, and I'll work on putting that together tomorrow night at Wild & Sassy, a small quilt group I joined.
Most of my quilt time was spent with Project Linus this week. We had a worknight on Thursday, and we have two work events coming up that we had to prepare for. We're going to be doing string blocks for all of them -- everyone enjoys making them, and we have plenty of strings. I have now cut out muslin for 3 quilts and I was determined to find enough center strip fabric from our Linus stash of solids.
We pieced red strips on one and blue on another -- but all these colors gave me a great idea. I'm making one of these quilts myself to test my idea. I'm really excited because it's a different shape and a different design than I've done before. Fun!! I'll post it soon. But wow, is my sewing room a mess.
Also went to a local quilt show and joined two swaps, more on those as I get to work on them. Enjoy springtime!
