Back to Sewing

I am chagrined to see how long it has been since last posted. Have been busy but not sewing. The last quilt I made went out on Aug 11 and I forgot to get a picture before I gifted it. All has been in turmoil  as my DD2 moved out. Boxes everywhere and almost everyroom disturbed.
But Bonnie has issued a hand sewing challenge. At first I thought I didn't have anything ready then, I remembered this one

This is the first I Spy that I made several years ago. I had it in my quilt frame to hand quilt and needed to pack it up out of the way for some family function. So it has been sitting rolled up for over two years I think. This is going to be my project this month.


  1. Wow -- that looks like a beauty! How large is it?

  2. Hey Mary, good for you! I dug out a similarly stored project this year and once I got going on it I managed to finish it in just a couple of months. I really do like hand quilting, we just live such rush rush lives it's hard to slow down and sit at the quilt frame! good luck, Claire W.

  3. It looks great! I've always wanted to make an I Spy quilt. Especially like your use of red.

  4. Mary, I love your mini profile! And your I Spy quilt seems like the perfect project to work on with Bonnie! Isn't she just the greatest inspiration!
