It took 5 years but they are done! These Eye Spy quilts were a lot of fun to make.
I really enjoyed exploring fabric stores looking for just the right animal print. Funny, the non sewers in the car didn’t feel the same way. But that is what happens when you live with a sewer, right?
There were a few set backs along the way. I made curtains out of my main solid colour for my son’s room not realizing it was the quilt fabric. So the green quilt has two slightly different solid greens. I miss calculated how many squares I needed and the two quilts are not quite the same size even thought that was my original plan. Math has never been a strength for me! Once the tops and back were complete I very wisely had them quilted by someone who has a quilting machine. I didn’t want it to take another 5 years. The boys would be in university!
Someday they will look at their quilt and think of me. My grandmother would be proud.
