I Spy…

by Nicole

…with my little eye, a new quilt starting!

For the past two years, I’ve been collecting fabric for an I-Spy quilt for one of my little girls.

Although I haven’t counted the fabrics to see if I have enough for the whole quilt, I think it’s time to get started.

I’m still working out a design, but here’s a test block I stitched up this weekend. I’m going the minimalist route on this one.

The quilt is going to be pink and girly! And it’s going to be a surprise so shhh, don’t tell her!

Love your test block. I'm usually not too fond of I spy quilts but I have a feeling that I'm going to love this one.

Can't wait to see when are finished! The block looks darling. I am in the process of collecting fabrics to make one for my littles.. you said you have two years worth of fabric so I think I still have quite a ways to go as I only started at the beginning of the year.

Oooooh offset centre squares are one of my very favourite modern designs and the fussy cut centres will be perfect! What a super surprise this is going to be. Enjoy every stitch!

Pink and girly? I already love it! We're on the same vibe as I just started a Ticker Tape version of an I Spy quilt for a sweet little someone this morning. Your mod blocks are great!
