I Spy a Quilt Finish!

I had so much fun collecting and then sewing my I Spy squares together! It took me over six months to collect the squares but only one week to sew them all together. I really love how it turned out! As an added bonus at the bottom of this post there is an adorable crochet diaper cover too. Without further ado...

The I Spy quilt!!! Love! This is my second finish off my Q2 FAL list. I put it together in a truly random way. All the squares were tossed into a bowl, mixed around, and then I picked them out without looking. If you like my fabrics and would like to make one of your own I have three packs still available in my shop. They are going pretty fast so if you'd like them then hurry over.

Here's a closeup of some of my favorite squares and the binding . I love this blue color!! The binding I, as usual, did a zigzag stitch. I really like the way it looks and how secure it is. Of course it's also way faster and easier on my fingers than hand sewing.

Here's more of the back and a bit of the quilting. I did a straight line a 1/4" from the seam on either side. I love the way it looks and how fast it was. It's seems I'm all about the speed today.

Here's a fun artsy picture of it. Please ignore my water meter in the background.

Each of my five kids love it for different reasons. The baby is the cutest though, mostly because she's the smallest, so I decided to take her pictures admiring it. It was hard to get her attention for the picture because there was so much fabulousness to look at. I will be making a much larger one as a picnic quilt for us and this one is now listed in the shop.

Speaking of shop, check out my latest creation! Isn't it adorable?!?! I'm so in love with this I can't stand it. The little pocks and the belt are so so cute. It's also available in my shop here.
Well, those are my finishes for the week. Thanks for stopping by! I'm linking up with TGIFF, Finish It Up Friday and Fabric Frenzy Friday.
