I Spy Quilt

Finally!  It's finally done. I had forgotten how long quilting takes.  It's really more for process people.  I think I will commit myself only to quilting for dolls or pillows in the future.  (Remind me of this when I forget.)  It's certainly not perfect, but my children enjoy it and it serves its purpose.  For this entire year I made a commitment to use as much as possible from my stash.  The sashing, binding, batting, and backing all came from my stash.  Slowly but surely I am reclaiming storage space.

For the backing I used some leftover flannel and minky.  I don't think I will ever try that again.  It bunched and pulled and wiggled.  In the end it worked out fine but just wasn't as pretty as I like.

I know in my last sewing post I promised give-aways.  Between quilting and bringing our daughter home for school I haven't had as much time for stash reduction as I wanted.  Stay tuned and in the next few weeks I have many fun things to share and give away for both homeschool and crafts.

  1. What a fantastic quilt and it will be extra snugly warm with the flannel and minky backing!!
