one thing, one week challenge two: met


I wasn't sure I'd make my own goal, what with everybody and their brother wanting to see us this weekend, but I pulled it off.  The second I Spy quilt is a top!


(Sorry it's not a better picture...it's getting late...)

I bought backing fabric for it yesterday:


Can you think of anything more perfect?  The biggest circles are probably 3 inches across, so it's a good large-scale print for a quilt back.  I was thrilled when I found it!

And with that, I need to get going.  Late dinner tonight and it's needing my attention again.

Happy quilting,
Katie

"Perfect!" is exactly what I said, even before I scrolled down to find that's what you said too! I think that may turn out to be the cutest I Spy quilt I've ever seen! Even the border fabric is perfect, as well as your "circles". ---"Love"
