[finished] I-spy quilt

Earlier this month I finished Ethan's second I-Spy quilt. This is way ahead of schedule - he needs two blankets for day care in December. I'm so pleased with it!

Isaac loves to play I-Spy with these blankets. Ethan, never wanting to be left out, points to random squares and says "Da!"

I pieced a scrappy back. I've been hanging on to that Space Invaders fabric for a long time, waiting for the right project. I also worked in a tiny bit of hedgehog fabric, leftover from some projects for Isaac when he was a baby.

New Clockwise Pinwheel templates

I've posted new Clockwise Pinwheel templates on Craftsy.

The free download now includes the (original) templates for a 4.5" unfinished block, and a 12.5" unfinished block. You can reference the original tutorial for piecing instructions. Enjoy!

[finished] Halloween quilt

This is the year I turned the Haunted Mansion jelly roll (that I've had for 4 years) into a quilt. And in time for Halloween, even!

IMG_5485I did straight-line quilting on one side of each long seam. This is the largest quilt I've quilted on my Bernina 830 - it measures just under 56" x 76". Much rolling, folding, and wrangling was required to quilt the center seams. IMG_5489-3 The back is pieced from yardage of other Halloween fabric I had in my stash. I love the monster movie posters and hearses!
