I seem to be motoring through this Disappearing Nine-Patch I-Spy, as helpfully laid out over at Obsessively Stitching. I’m using fabric sent to me to by the other Wellesley alum who is quilting along with me, as well as some fabrics stashed from trips to the fabric store in Framingham, MA, way back when.
A true I-Spy quilt has squares of completely unique fabrics, and this pattern called for 88 prints. I was able pull together 11 with an animal theme, and cut 8 squares from each (except for one very small piece, compensated with extra squares from a similar piece). I’m done cutting, now piecing, before more cutting, more piecing… well, you know how quilts go.
After this, I’d like to try something a little more adventurous (e.g., shapes other than squares). Meanwhile, I’m almost done the scarf/stole made from the yarn I dyed this summer… more on that in another post.
