    I Spy quilt for Spencer and other stuff.

    Here is a quilt I was inspired to make having seen one on this board. It's rather bright and was great fun to do. Spencer's Mum was thrilled with it. I used both red and blue for the borders, just for fun.
    The Flying Geese "Tranquility" was constructed using the quick method. I enjoyed doing it but it was quite heavy when finished. There is a lot of fabric in there. I see that I have mistakenly posted the pre quilted pictures, the finished ones are on my DH's camera. DOH!
    The cushion was made from 2 orphan blocks which must be 3yrs old at least! They were left over from a baby girls quilt I made.

    I love them all. I had fun looking at all the cute fabrics in the I-spy. I realized that I have a little bit of one of those fabrics. Your little cushion is totally adorable

    I like the way you put the sashing in the I Spy quilt - it makes it easier to look at -

    What is the name for the pattern of your blue batik quilt? I have at least quarter yard pieces of oodles of batik fabrics (I would sew everything out of batik if poissible) and see this pattern as a fabulous way of showcasing those fabrics without doing a quilt in a scrappy style.

    It is the quick method of flying geese. I think I saw it done by Rickie Timms? The setting is called ?Dutchman's Puzzle (I think) Basically the 2 background squares (I used white) were cut at 3" x3" and the strips of batik cut at 3" wide x 5.5" long. The formula is the strip of colour should be .5" less than the total sum of the 2 squares. Place one square RS up, fold the coloured strip in half lengthwise with WS tog. Place the folded edge of the colour strip level with the top of the square and the right hand side flush with the edge of the square. Place the second square on top with it's RS down. Sew from the folded edge of the sandwich . Here is the link. Hope this helps. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78Mu0C_QL8Y

    Loved your quilts especially your colorful I Spy Quilt. I have started collecting fabrics for I Spy quilts for my two grandchildren and am trying to decide how I want to do them. There are lots of great samples to choose from on the board. What size are your individual pieces? Is it from a pattern or did you just put it together? I think I could do that once I finally decide on a pattern. How large is the overall quilt? I made oversized baby quilts for both of them when they were born and am thinking about making these to fit a twin bed. Did you also make it a find the matching square quilt?

    Beautiful work!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    You've been busy! The I Spy quilt is terrific - love bright, happy colors and pictures for kids quilts. The blue batik quilt is wonderful, I like how the colors move from one area to the other. The pillow is fun, too. Great jobs!
