I Spy Quilt

I just completed my first project, I Spy Quilt, on my long list of things that I want to make. I am quiet satisfied with the way it turned out, especially since it's my first completed project using the sewing machine. I got my inspiration from here.

Front of quilt: The squares aren't perfectly lined up and the binding corners were a little tricky.

Back of quilt: I Spy a purple ball...


  1. What a great job you did!! If I had any sewing abilities, I would absolutely make one of these. Ha!

    I stumbled upon your blog not too long ago and just love all of your ideas and activities. In this week's Tot School post, I linked your blog from mine. Thank you so much for sharing all you do!!

  2. Love it! I've wanted to make one too, but it hasn't happened.

  3. So cute! I've seen these around, but I don't have a sewing machine. Someday. Did you just make it up or did you use a tutorial from somewhere?

  4. Our Little Family,

    Thank you so much for your kind words. I really enjoy sharing my "found" and "original" ideas and glad to know others are enjoying them too! Thanks!

  5. Sheena,

    I found my inspiration elsewhere...if you look on my side bar under "Completed Projects" there is a link to where I found the idea. Then, I searched for a tutorial and took bits and pieces of many to make mine. I really had a hard time with the binding and tried to watch several YouTube videos on how to do it...after messing up several times, I ended up taking the quilt down to our locally owned fabric store to get instructions, which was so much more helpful. The binding still isn't perfect...

  6. Looks great! Congratulations on your first sewing machine project!
