a boy version. I won that pack of I-spy quilt blocks from Lyanna, after sorting them into boy, girl and neutral, I was able to use just over 50 of them in this quilt for a boy.
I think almost every quilt I work on I think to myself during construction, oh man this is not going well, those seams are crooked, those colors are silly, why can't you cut a straight line, the self talk goes on and on. And then when it is all said and done, I am always pleased with the final quilt. All that stress about design and unevenness just don't bother me after the quilt has a nice trip in the wash. This quilt was no exception, I was so hating it but after quilting and binding I was in love.
I think I had such a hard time liking this one from the beginning because this is my first quilt using I-spy fabrics, the randomness of the colors was really hard for me to deal with. It just looked so messy but like I said I really like the finished product. I used a brown sheet for the backing and gray thread to quilt wide random vertical lines. So this and the girly quilt are off to warm some babies in the mountain baby project! yay!
finished size: 49" x 49"
so now I can focus on a little project for Lills. Santa sent word from the workshop that I am way behind schedule! yikes!
