I Spy Quilt #2

 I did it...... I finally finished the other I spy quilt. I joined a swap a few months back and 100 squares. When I laid them all out it was huge!! So I decided to pick out my favorite boy fabrics and make a I Spy Quilt for my son. I made six rows of six. For a total of 36 squares that are 6x6.
I wanted it to be different than the one I made before. I tried quilting for the first time. :) It was scary at first but really fun once I got used to it. I love how it turned out!

This time I also decided to do a border around each square. It took a bit longer to do but I love how it frames each square. I really enjoyed trying something new and stepping out of my comfort zone. What's something new you've tried lately?

  1. Horray for machine quilting. . . it looks fantastic. You always do such a great job choosing fabrics and putting it all together.
