I Spy Quilt

The more I looked at it, I realized it was a great teaching opportunity and at the same time a fun game!   “I spy something Red” or “I spy a bird”. The other person has to find that item.

A quilt for Kelley

Back in 2002, when I found out a server at our local pub was pregnant, I already had an idea for a baby quilt.

I love paper piecing. It’s easier than applique and gives great accuracy to a design.  The paper piece pattern comes from Margaret Rolfe’s Animal Kingdom.  The quilt is approx. 50″ x 45″.
