Quilting is so comforting.

I decided to start to quilt my "I spy" quilt last night. This is one of the FOUR quilts that I am working on right now (I am a true Gemini...lol). I did finish up two quilts since January and have my grandmother's half quilted...like I said in my title "quilting is so comforting". I will talk about grandma's quilt in another post.
The "I spy" quilt was a real fun one to do. My friend and I collected fabric for a couple months from friends here and out of state (Texas and New York)...thanks ladies. :-) Our squares are cut 4 inches and we have 150 squares (all different). Then we added a 2.5 inch black sashing and a 3.5 inch red sashing. I embroidered the words "I spy" in primary colors all around the quilt.
My grandsons already love to find all the fun things on the quilt.
I will post another picture of the quilt when it is finished...who knows when that will be, that other twin keeps pulling me onto other projects...LOL.

I wanted to say a BIG Happy Birthday to my longtime friend, Barb.

Take care,
