So far, so good

Today I tried laying out the 3" squares I have for an I SPY. Fun. I can see how a big design-wall would be helpful, but I don't sew enough to justify taking up an entire wall ;-)


It was fun seeing the whole thing laid out like that, and it's going to be even better when I get the rest of the squares done! I can't wait to get it done, and start playing I SPY with the kids.

Viola looked at me in disbelief and said: "Oh but mom! We can't sew that much!"

Sweet :-)

....and look at my purple little one in her new skirt....

that is going to be one fantastic I SPY quilt. I love how it goes from dark to light from the outside in.

Oh Tine, that's worked really well - the light and shade is so lovely. I can just imagine you all snuggled under the quilt-to-be gleefully pointing out "There!" Have fun sewing it up! (p.s. I too would LOVE a design wall - one day!)

I love the way you arranged the colors, kind of like a watercolor quilt. This is going to look great!

So cool! I love how your values go from light to dark. Very from to look at up close as it is far away.

What a great quilt! I hadn't heard of "I Spy" quilts before; it must have been a lot of fun to find all the fabrics. Do you need any more? I would love to send you some darling green frogs, some black cats, some guitars and other musical instruments,and Sponge Bob Square Pants. (Is Sponge Bob in TV in Denmark?)

I love Viola's new skirt! Are you making a matching one for yourself?

I love I spy quilts; hope to make one of my own at some point. This one looks great!

GOOD JOB!
