Provided by Quilters!


Tuesday afternoon:  Two packets of kid fabric chunks and squares arrived today, all squished into my mailbox!  Wowser - like Christmas in January!!!!!  Thank you so much ladies - what a warm, lovely way to finish my afternoon!  One packet arrived from Utah, and another from Ontario - you know who you are!   8-)))))  I can't wait to start on the next "I Spy" quilt - I've been given many, many cute, kid-type fabrics - so many fun pieces, images we've not seen around here.  Life is good!  

The previously shown "I Spy" quilt was completed and gifted - hope the parents enjoy many years of games with their little boy.   

God bless you all.

Disappearing 9-Patch, (I Spy) Kids Quilt

 So far, so good.

Closer view - my arrangement left all the blocks right side up.  

I have a LOT more 4.5 in. squares, sent from friends and bloggers.  Everyone wanted to help out!  This quilt is going to an RN who headed up the Cardio P.T. that I attended for almost 3 months.  She had a new baby about the time of my medical "incident" so I wasn't able to make it then.

It's very jumbled, but I am trying new things -- I like it.  I had seen a friend's Disappearing 9-Patch that was over-the-top beautiful, made with black on black background batiks, with each square in a bright, almost solid batiks - it was stunning.  So, that batik idea is for another day.  Best part of this quilt is few seams to match, and enjoying the variety of cute squares that came from numerous local and national friends.  8-)))   Thank you to all.  A second quilt is in the making for the squares that came later.    This one is about 56 inches square.

Overfed, and an "I Spy" Quilt

 This was a greeting card I received - LOVE IT!  Been there, done that!  Happy New Year everyone!

I'm working on this Disappearing 9-patch, and also put a call out to my nearby quilty friends as I need MORE of those cute, bright squares.  My efforts to shop for new, fresh charms was not successful - perhaps too many others had same idea.
