Finished - Ayla's I Spy Quilt

I bet you didn't see that coming!  I finished a quilt!  OK, so it's a small quilt with simple quilting, but it is finished and gifted!  I snuck in a few hours of sewing between house showings and finished this cute little quilt for a very special one year old.  I purchased a couple bundles of slightly mis-cut  5" square novelty prints at Keepsake Quilting's annual tent sale a couple of years ago.   Isn't it fun to find the right fabric in your stash for a project?
Pinwheel blocks, 60 different pairs of fun fabrics to match, light quilting to keep it soft and happy backing fabric.
The end is in sight for the new sewing room (oh, and the rest of the house of course).  The walls are painted, the beautiful cork floor is down and the new TV is on the wall!  If you look carefully, you can see the lake.
Did I tell you that we have buyers for the Massachusetts home?  Hooray!  Yesterday the house was packed and today is moving day.  I started out with such good intentions to prune through and only take what is needed and will fit into the new house.  However, as time passed I found myself just throwing things in boxes yesterday with the knowledge stuff will have to be donated or disposed of in New Hampshire.  

It will be a fun couple of days as we pack up the truck today and unpack it tomorrow!  Summer at the lake, here we come!

Happy Wednesday!


  1. You DID catch me off guard with this finish! Good job Kath!! Have fun's easier to go through the old stuff as you unpack anyways. Remember the show where they created: Keep, donate, throw away piles??? THAT"S what I did when we moved into our new home. Have fun!!! (Oh love your view!!)

  2. I'm working on a quilt right now that I think would make a perfect I spy quilt. I've put a lot of my favorite prints in it and think it would be so much fun! Yours is very cute!

    This looks like a dream space for sewing.. natural light, lots of space, and a lake view! Have fun setting it up!

  3. Such a lovely cute finish! Hope your moving day goes smoothly!

  4. Such a cute I Spy! Wow you are moving faster than I thought! I hope you'll like your new house!
    And New Hampshire, too. We keep looking at houses where we used to live when first married (and where DH was born--Pittsfield, MA) but then we think about all the STUFF we have and sort of table it. Soon we will have to deal with it our 70's we are finding that this house is getting to be tough to take care of....hugs, Julierose

  5. Woohoo! Your sewing room looks so great!!! And the thought of matching triangles with a wee one is too sweet! Congrats on selling your house....New Hampshire here you come!!! :)
