    I just finished this Eye Spy quilt for my 17 month old granddaughter. I hope she likes it. but before I am giving it to her I am submitting it in our quilt show which begins tomorrow. My quilting isn't the straightest but I'm learning.

    Good for you for putting it in a quilt show. The idea is to share ideas. This will be an inspiration to so many people. They won't even see or care if your stitching isn't straight. They will only see the wonderful idea and the wonderful colors and smile. What a wonderful quilt that is sure to bring many smiles.

    I hope you do well with it in the show. It is a wonderful quilt. I spy quilts are great for kids. They are so much fun. It can be taken anywhere...like a traveling activity.

    Is your sashing a black muslin or other material?

    Thanks for the wonderful comments. Our show is not judged so that is good. Our members have done many beautiful quilts which will blow mine away but that is ok. We have to start somewhere. I did the Eye spy exchange on this board. After doing it this year I organized one with the guild. I'm in the process of making two more. They are alot of fun. Thanks. My black is Kona black and the sashing is 1.5 inches. I tried sewing without the sashing but had a hard time putting the busy patterns touching.

    I know this thread is ancient, but I had to say that I thought the diagonal quilting was really nice with the squares.

    It is wonderful & will be loved. I love the black sashing around the blocks. Makes the blocks really pop. Also love the affect your quilting made on it. You truly done a great job & it deserves an A+.

    I love eye spies, love the border.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
