Piece 'I Spy' Quilt Tops ~ Check!

Don't you love checking items off your to-do list? I sure do! One of the things I wanted to accomplish this summer was to use up the 120 I Spy charm squares I received in Karen's I Spy Block Swap last year. The first quilt, this boy's quilt with fun striped binding, was completed and is now in my Etsy shop, and now I can happily announce that I have completed the other four quilt tops and have even cut the backing for each one!

I Spy Quilt TopsHere's the pile, all colorful and fun!

I Spy Quilt TopsOoooh, I didn't realize how blurry this picture is until just as I'm writing this! Sorry about that. Anyway, you can see the backing fabric folded up on the side with all those fun penguins on it. This is the same fabric that I used for the little squares in the denim sashing.

I Spy Quilt TopsHere's another one that got denim sashing, and the little squares are made with that bright animal print that will also be used for the backing.

I Spy Quilt TopsHere's the pretty pink girly quilt top, with soft pink oxford cloth sashing and barely darker pink squares with little white lines in between. The backing fabric has pink music notes all over it.

I Spy Quilt TopsThis fourth quilt top has wood grain fabric as the sashing and backing, with green leaf fabric for the little squares in between.

So that's another project to check off my list for this summer. Whew! I am hoping to long arm quilt these four myself, but I must wait until my favorite long arm quilter has time to teach me how to use her machine. Then I'll have to find time to actually use it and get these done! School is starting again soon and this will be the first year that all three of my children will be in school (college sophomore, 2nd grade and Kindergarten!), so I should be able to find time for this and other things on my list as well. We'll see!

Happy Stitching!
