one thing, one week challenge #1: met

Last Tuesday I told you about Amy's Creative Side One Thing, One Week Challenge.  I challenged myself to get the first I Spy top done.  I had one week.

This is where I was a week ago today:


Challenge met!


Stats:
49x57"
inspiration here

I would have basted it and started quilting (I was that into it), but my basting tables have been loaned out for a garage sale.  (To none other than the momma of the gal this quilt will go to!)

Now I'm working on the 2nd I Spy quilt.  8 down, 34 circles to go.

I'll show more pics next time.

Happy quilting,
Katie

LOVE IT! Great job. I've done 2 I-Spy quilt and need to so 1 more. I like the way my eye follows the line to the next I-spy square.
