Last week I read about Ali's contest the Festival of Hexagons and it was exactly the hot poker I needed to light a fire under me and get going on the I Spy quilt I've had on my to-do list forever.
I had originally planned for this to be a small wall hanging but the more hexies I made, the bigger the project became, and it seemed a quilt was the way to go.
I'm glad too because now the kids can lay down on the floor and play I Spy. If it was on the wall I am not sure it would actually get used very much.
I spy a scooter, a robot, a cupcake, an owl...
The hexies are machine appliqued and machine quilted in an echo pattern around the star. I was ever so thankful for my auto-lift-easy pivot function on my presser foot as I sewed all of these on.
Thanks Ali for motivating me!
check out all of the entries.
Wish me luck!
