Eye Spy Quilt

Ready for some quilt photos on this, an actual quilt blog?  I have a finish to show you.


Right smack dab in the middle of school holidays, and I’ve not had much time for extended sewing.  I did manage to put the final stitches in this Eye Spy quilt I’d been working on.


It was based on some quilt somewhere I saw on the internet.  They didn’t do it as an Eye Spy, but I had a big bag of them and I thought they would work well for it.


Yes and no.  The pattern is lovely as a scrap one, but it’s really not a good way of showing those Eye Spy fabrics.


So all in all a very nice quilt.  Will I make that pattern again?  I don’t know.  It’s got a lot of those ‘stitch half a seam, sew the other seams, go back and stitch the rest of the half seam’ in it and they did take some thinking about. 

In other news – back into the grind on Tuesday when the girls go back to school.  It’s my big girl’s final year at Primary School and to say I’m not happy is an understatement! (I’m joking – kinda – it’s such a bittersweet feeling watching my little babies turn into big girls).

But it is what it is, I guess. 

Hope you’re having a lovely, quilty day.


  1. Great finish!! Now i know about what mine will look like; tho i have more medium/dark tones. My blocks are still in the pile on the sewing table.

  2. I like the way you have made this into an eye spy quilt. The setting is very effective with all the interesting fabrics. Great finish.
