Good Grief!

I've been MIA for over 1 1/2 months!  All those grandkid visits and then the MN birthday visit, and the Hubz' business trip, etc, etc,  - I just didn't have time to blog.  I'm back now, at least for a little while. 

So, here's the I Spy quilt all tied and crinkled and already loved by the little guy.

I didn't want to quilt this one, so I tied in in all sorts of embroidery floss.  Tying takes almost no time at all, and I thought it would be fun for a little guy.



The little guy loves to sit on it, and his family is playing "where's the doggy, etc" with him.  His mom is impressed with all the work, but I told her that it was actually a very easy quilt to make.  I love picking out fabrics and deciding where they will go.  I do NOT like knowing what my quilt will look like before I make it.  I'm the same way with knitting.  I love the surprise of when it all comes together.

I love your I Spy. It's a bit like mine on my banner, that went to a grandson, too. Lots of different pictures and colors.
I told mom and dad that it wasn't the kind of quilt that you drag around, so they put it into his crib, and it may still be "alive". I wanted it to last at least as long as it took me to make it. (They also have dogs that chew anything.)
Thanks for sharing your quilt.
Hugs

You've finished it! It's absolutely gorgeous - and has inspired me to make one for my Grandson2B, Oliver. Pinned for future reference :D
