I started working on the iSpy quilt for ‘The Blue One’ for the camper. Thanks to the multiple charm swaps I participated in, I didn’t have to cut out 88 5×5″ fabric squares for this quilt. I also had most of the sashing strips pre-cut because I did them when I cut the strips for ‘The Pink One’s’ quilt 2 weeks ago. I only had to cut extras because I decided to add blocks to each of their quilts.
I decided to add one more row of charm squares to this quilt because:
1) I had them, so why not?
2) He’s taller than The Pink One, so I figured he could benefit from a few more inches of fabric!
Next step – press them all open, lay them out one more time, and start assembling blocks. I’m not really sure when that’s going to happen, because we’re camping for the first time this weekend, and there is a lot to do to get ready for the trip. On top of that, we’ve got 2 neighbor kids overnight for the next 2 nights, so there will be a little extra activity at our house. Heck, maybe I SHOULD lock myself in my craft room and work on the blocks. I don’t think the knob has a lock, but maybe I can barricade myself in there! There’s a thought!
Yes, I have considered taking my sewing machine on the camping trip, but since I’m usually the one telling the family to get out of the camper, I don’t think it would be cool if I was the one sitting inside sewing!
