Another WIP Wednesday

Its another Wednesday.
Time to take a step back and see how far I've 
gotten on my Works In Progress this week. 
I'm trying really hard not to listen to the voices 
calling me to start new projects



I finished this little I Spy this week.
It is one of two, and is made for my second grandchild. 
I love how it turned out.
It 's perfect for nap time snuggling at Mema's house. 

I finished my grandson's sometime ago, but here it is, alike yet different. 
You can really see how the surrounding colors set a different feel to the quilt. 


While I love these two quilts, there are easier ways to make an 
I Spy quilt and I probably won't make any like this in the future. 

I have a second finish this week. 
Another I Spy, because grandchild number three needs one too.

I was inspired by this quilt made by Nettie from A Quilt is Nice
You can see her original post about it here.


Its beautiful, and has a sweetness and simplicity about it.
It was perfect for my third I Spy.
I love rounded quilt corners, and they are always my first choice.  
They just seems so much more friendlier
I already had lots of I spy fabric left over, but wanted to try something new.
With this quilt I could focus on girlie squares for the spying.
Nettie's quilt fit.




I wanted to go for a light purple, but my local store didn't carry any, so pink it was.
I loved Nettie's circular quilting, but I wasn't brave enough, so I went with straight lines.
I think the straight lines take something away from the quilt, but I know my sweet little one year old won't care. She will love it as it is, and that makes me happy.


Here are my two finishes together!  
I don't think I have ever had two finishes in one week! 
I am linking to WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.

Now to clean out an extra bedroom. I wonder what other WIP I will find?

  1. I love the rounded corners on your quilt. It softens it up and is perfect for a little one. And talk about time - all of that fussy cutting! Whew!

  2. OOH, I love your rounded corners! They look so polished! And I love the hexagon I-spy, but wow! I can only imagine how long that took to cut.

  3. Love your I-Spy quilts! So fun for little ones.

    The rounded corners are a sweet touch- you've inspired me to try my hand at them on a future quilt.
