Description


I knew the I Spy swap would be a lifesaver! I needed a quilt in a hurry for a baby boy. So I went to my wonderful stack of I Spy fabrics from the swap, added some moda solid charms and voila! Not quite 90 minutes ( I have never been able to actually do a 90 minute quilt in 90 minutes!) but about 3 1/2 hours-it's as simple as can be, stitch in the ditch and a solid back in lime green.

This is a wonderful boy quilt. I spy two of the prints I sent for this swap. Cool! Even at 3 1/2 hours, that's fast. Nice job.

Silsbee

Yay! Looks great! :)

True

WOW 3.5 hours is still pretty amazing to me!! And love it...

Mymble

Kruppcake Thanks Patty- which two were some of the ones you sent?

Mymble

Silsbee Many thanks!

Mymble

True LOL- well when everything is already cut out it does speed up the process-I I think you'd probably make the same time-maybe even faster since I sewed two rows in upside down and had to take them out and redo them -ahem!!!- hey maybe we should have one of those quilt races when we finally all get together- ha ha-wouldn't that be a hoot!

True

Mymble you mean you are not suppose to sew things in upside down?! Now you tell me;-)

Mymble

True You mean I can???? what a relief;))))

Mymble The taxi cabs and baseball gloves with the baseballs are two from the group I sent.

Mymble

Love 'em:)

Kathie

This is so cute and I see a couple of my squares smile ! You are so good to get this done, I'm still just planning . . .

Mymble

Kathie Thanks Kathie- which were yours? There's nothing like a deadline to speed up the decision making process and get me going:))

Kathie

Mymble Chickies, seashells and whales are the ones I recognize! I'm excited to make mine now but first a pirate pillow for my grandson . . .

Mymble

Kathie Love pirate themes-I've got a small stash of pirate fabrics I'm planning to keep adding to for a future project:)

That makes one colorful happy baby quilt! And I agree, even at 3.5 hours I am impressed. Have you seen one of those seam rippers that looks like a miniature hair clipper? Great for long stretched of reverse sewing!!! Great I tell you!

Capetowngirl

This is lovely. I see some of the prints I sent you. Can't wait to start mine. All my hexagons are done, but just want to wait and see what the next swap sens me..

LibraryLil

Nice! Great to see the fabric from the swap in finished projects! Can't wait to get my group of charms in the mail! (I was in the second round only.)

Mymble

Terryt1955 Ack!!! NO- I need one of those:))) - where are they?

Mymble

Capetowngirl Thanks- all the prints in the swap were great- I still have enough for a "girl" quilt and if another round comes around I'll join in to add to my "Boy" stack! It was a super swap.

Mymble

LibraryLil Thanks-Yes, I hesitated posting it since it's such a simple quilt and a variation on a number of my baby quilts, but I thought exactly that- the swappers will want to see where their fabrics ended up:))) It was a really good swap- if Rebecca does another round I'll probably hop back in.

Mymble I picked mine up at PQIF 2 years ago but here's a link to the site http://www.heirloomcreations.net/sewing-tips/electric-seam-ripper/.
There's nothing worse than screwing up at 2 in the morning and having 90 inches of a seam to rip out. I love mine!
