I have a tutorial *almost* done so hopefully I can get it up later this week - but I just couldn't wait to share the quilt until then.
Without further ado - The I*Spy Quilt!
|Top & Back|
I used 96 different charms and combined them with Kona White for the background. I had the different colors of polka dots in my stash (they're from Connecting Threads) and backed it in purple gingham by Michael Miller and bound it in a Bella purple (not sure the name).
This was also the first big project I free-motion quilted on my home machine! I won't deny that I need some more practice but once it's all washed and crinkly everything fades together. I will definitely be doing some more FMQ at home soon.
The gift was a huge hit, she loved it and snuggled up with it that night!! Her older sister also informed me that if E didn't like it that she'd take it :) - Guess I better get working on a quilt for her too!
Keep your eyes peeled for the tutorial soon!
Linking up at Manic Monday over @ Sew.Happy.Geek
I've decided to add this quilt as my entry for the Festival of Half Sqauare Triangles over at Canoe Ridge Creations since everything except the border and back is made from a HST! Be sure to check out the other entries.
