I saw this a while ago from All People Quilt. It's a new twist on an I Spy quilt. If I knew how to embroider I'd make one!

I like. But I do not have a Embroidy machine yet. And hand will take to long.

You don't have to embroider, you can use novelty print, just like you would on any other I Spy

I'm sorry, it's appliqued (did I spell that right). Anyway, I've never done that either!

Oh, you can do it! Don't let it intimidate you. Just practice on some scraps and before you know it, you'll be a pro!!
Come on....I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

LOL Terri (it is Terri isn't it?) thanks for the encouragement! Maybe that's something I'll tackle in the new year. I have so many things on my to-do list before Christmas that I need to take the next 6 weeks off of work!! I hope someone does do it though!

:) :)
You can do it. Heck, if you can take pretty fabric, cut it into pieces and put it all back together to make it even prettier, then you can applique! Just try it!! I bet once you do, you'll get hooked! :)

That is a cute idea. Would take fewer different prints to do one like that.
