In April, my wife (Judy) and I, while driving to Cedar Key, Florida for a vacation, decided that we wanted to make I Spy quilts. We have 14 month old twin boy neighbors. So we started looking for material. Judy wanted them to be 36" x 48" with 3" octagional pieces. That means 192 pieces - each. Roaming around, we found the Suwannee Valley Shoppes in Trenton, Florida. What a great quilt shop. They have over 5000 bolts of fabric. While there we mentioned we were beginning I Spy quilts. One of the ladies said that she was making 4 for her grandchildren and that she would send us some of her scraps. A week or so after we got home, a package arrived with lots of useable pieces. Therefore, the pieces in the quilts come from Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. I did the cutting and some of the in the ditch quilting. Judy sewed all the pieces together. What fun.
Attahced are pictures of one of the quilts. I am sending a second message with number 2.
