Getting There

I was able to sit down and work on The Blue One’s iSpy quilt last night.  I took this (slightly blurry) picture this morning on my way out the door to work.  If I’m able to sit down for a little bit tonight I’ll have all of the strips together, then will just have to start sewing them to each other.  Shouldn’t be long now!


I am waiting on the border and binding fabric to arrive so that I can color-match it and get the backing fabric ordered for this one and for The Pink One’s iSpy quilt.  I hope to have them both ready for the quilter in a couple of weeks.  Fingers crossed!

I’m linking up to Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday again today.  Happy Hump Day, Y’All!

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

    Great start. I am very slowly collecting fabrics to make an I spy as well.

    I love I Spy. I see some very cute fabrics in yours!

    This is too cute! Did you collect all the fabrics or swap for them?

    • msminnesota says:

      I did swaps for them. I haven’t been quilting long enough to build up enough of a stash to do 2 iSpy quilts. The swaps are definitely the way to go!

    This is looking very cute, I saw in an earlier post that you were thinking about borders, I think that a simple border would be good and if you did them in differ colours it would make it easier to tell the quilts apart.

      I finally found exactly what I was looking for – and it shipped today!
      For ‘his’ iSpy, I have white with blue dots and blue with white dots that I will use for the border & the binding…I’m just not sure yet which I’ll use where.
      For ‘her’ iSpy quilt, I have white with red dots and red with white dots. Whichever way I go with one, I’ll do for the other. Then solids on the backs (blue for his, red for hers). I think they’ll compliment each other nicely!
      Thanks for stopping by!
