great I Spy. I made one and discovered I'm not a novelty fabric person, Sharing/swapping with other quilters saved me from having to buy lots of pieces. And when I finished it, other quilters were happy to get pieces of the leftovers.

As to being known for something: about 6 mo into my Q experience, someone said, "this looks like a ***** fabric." Looked at what I had chosen and she was right. Put it all back. The next project I made new parameters: all fabric was from sale tables, the pattern had to be a challenge. That ended my predictability. I'm still known for my use of colors, more specifically- value.

I miss cut one of the fabrics so didn't have enough for 12 squares (I can only break a few "rules" at a time-just couldn't do 10 blocks). The pattern name is "Aquarium". The border I designed.

Awesome job. Love all the scrappy colors. Bet your pile of scraps went down (at least a little bit.)

The quints are now sextuplets. I already posted this in the VQW thread, but I wanted to add a picture of the last (?) in this series to this thread as well. :-)

These are amazing works, continue in some form, mine were aprons, but I stop. They wanted me to go on ebay and I didn't want all that

All are great "I Spy Quilts" and love how you added different sized blocks to help draw interest.

Very fun designs for these I Spy Quilts. You did a great job on them. I have enjoyed each and every one of them.
It is easy to get in a rut making the same quilt over and over. I did that with DWR quilts. Now I haven't made one in about 10 years. Take a well deserved break from you I Spy quilts and do something just for yourself now.
