One Done (Mostly)

The top for The Pink One’s iSpy quilt for the camper is almost finished.

Next step – to border or not to border?  I’m leaning toward doing a border, but I’m not sure what.  I want it plain, that much I know.  I also don’t know what to do for the back….again, I’m thinking plain, likely a solid.

While I think about it, I can get to work on The Blue One’s quilt top – that should give me a few days to come up with a fabulous idea.

Oh yeah, so far the top is 44×54.  The pattern I followed called for 64 charm squares, thus a 44×44 finished top.  Once I laid it out this morning, I felt it was too small, so whipped up one more row for it.  I’ll do the same with the one for The Blue One.

One to Go…

About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

    I love how you designed this and offset your squares. I agree, I think we were in the same swap because we have the exact same fabrics. I love what you did with yours. I can’t wait to see the finished product!

      Candace – thanks for stopping by! I followed the pattern from Carla at Lollyquiltz (http://lollyquiltz.blogspot.com/2011/04/official-i-spy-swap.html). I’ve finally decided that I’m going to do a red border and back for it. I’m trying to find the perfect binding for it – I was thinking red/white stripes or polka dots – then I saw your binding and thought it would be perfect for this! The only problem is that I’m doing one for my son as well and I am going to do the border and back with a blue, and Michael Miller doesn’t have a white with blue dots fabric. So, the search continues! I love the triangles you did that allows for the built-in matching game. Cleaver!
