"I Spy" quilt, thank you Joan

Blogger, Joan, said she wanted to reduce her too-large stash of novelties and offered them to me.  I guess you can surmise my answer.  This is one just completed,  about 46 x 48 inches.  Wow, there are so many different fabrics/squares, many were already cut at 2.5 in., and now sewn together, most of them are situated in the same direction.  I added the white for breathing space.  This will be a donation for Hugs and Stitches, sponsored by our LQS.


There has been little machine quilting at my home and I feared I'd lost my touch,  but as soon as I sat down and got moving, this big swirly design designed itself and was finished in about an hour.  (I MQ on my DSM.)



Another set of 5 inch squares is awaiting me -- more novelties from Joan. 8-))))

I sincerely doubt that you have lost your touch! You were the one who inspired me to begin quilting my own quilts and provided encourage to do it! I know what you mean when you say that the swirl designed itself. When I have no idea what design to use, if I just get started, it seems to start flowing - not always, but sometimes.

Your free-motion swirls are just right for this sparkly quilt. Good job!
