A mostly leisurely day.......

The last time I taught an 'I Spy' quilt class was about 10 years ago and I made kits of 6.5" squares and kits of 3.5" squares to sell.  In the basement I found 2 medium size bins that had most of the fabric scraps in them along with some of the squares that were left over.  It was fun to see all of the prints again and sort the fabrics into piles of small scraps and large scraps. Then I went to my yardage to pull a few more prints which I cut last night.  I hope to meet with my friend soon and see which ones she will want.
I wanted something to do while I watched the 10 o'clock news last night so I pulled out the box of fabrics from church sewing circle.  One of the other ladies washed and pressed all of the donated fabric and I just needed to cut pillowcase kits from it for next Monday.  There is a little more to cut after I re-press a few of the fabrics.

Someday I want to do an I spy quilt. I really like the concept. I have no grand children yet though.

The I Spy Quilts are so much fun! I made one for my 8-year-old granddaughter this year using a hexi pattern. I added a few family pictures in for fun. If you want to see it, it's posted on my blog. http://gladysgab.blogspot.com/2012/08/i-spy-birthday-quilt-for-zoe.html

Seeing those prints for children just made me smile. "TOO CUTE" that is for sure. Dragon flies and turtles are my favorites. I would love to fan through the rest to see what I was missing. (*._,*)

Any of those fabrics you will be working on for pillow cases will be so appreciated. No one has pillow cases like those that are made from your church swing circle. They always warm my heart knowing where they are going.

I bought a couple "I Spy" kits at one of Judy H's legendary garage sales. They made a fabulous quilt for my then 3 year old niece. What fun!
