I spy quilt …….. that 100 5″ Economy Blocks make a Gorgeous Quilt top today.
One of the things I love most about Quilting is fussy cutting….. and it is even more enjoyable now that I have such a stash of fabric – I have small pieces of fabric I can use for projects such as these. I remember looking at I Spy Quilts when I first started to quilt, and thought Oh dear – that would be a lot of FQs to buy to achieve such a project !! And here we are 4 years later – and Yay !!
This was a work in progress (one of those UFOs) for a while. Each block being created as I found the small pieces of fabric to use. Instead of picking the fabric first. The fabric was used if it was big enough to cut two 3″ or 4″ squares. Of course being an I Spy Quilt, I went through my character fussy cut bits and pieces I use for appliqué etc….
I love it when you see 4 blocks together, and then a few more, and then another…… The Economy Block I used is mentioned in the gorgeous blog of Sew Delicious, in which she refers to the Economy Block tutorial of Red Pepper Quilts.
This “I Spy Quilt” is beautiful.
This 50″ Square I Spy Quilt would make a great play mat for that special someone or a cot quilt when they get a little older !! Now for the Quilting and binding ! This Quilt will be available in my Etsy store very soon.
Thanks for reading.
