Rainbow I Spy for my little girl, who loves it so much that I haven't been able to get it off her bed in order to get the label sewn on!
Bonus tip: I have been using fusible thread to fuse my binding prior to stitching it down (by hand or by machine), following this tutorial. With the I Spy quilt, I was really
Made another block to contribute to one of the group quilts that the Siblings Together Flickr Group is putting together.

Your rainbow I spy quilt is a stunner!ReplyDelete
Love the rainbow I spy, which you know already! Thanks for the tip on the fusible thread. What a great idea!ReplyDelete
Why is it that the idea of fusible thread sounds scary to me? I will have to look into it!ReplyDelete
The quilt is wonderful and the fact that your little one loves it so much must thrill you!
I'm on the hunt for fusible thread today, must finish a quilt!! Thanks so much for the tip, back in the day I used to use it in the bobbin when sewing the binding on small quilts, but I found that it melts and the binding falls off that way! :(ReplyDelete
Fusible thread wouldn't have scared me until I made a HUGE screw up binding a Siblings Together quilt this weekend, now binding holds fear for me, although that tip looks really cool...ReplyDelete
Yeah for the great finish! I had never heard of fusible thread either so thank you! :)ReplyDelete
Very interesting about the fusible thread. Never heard of such a thing!ReplyDelete
Love the block, very cool.
How interesting about the fusible thread, I'll have to look into that! The I-Spy Quilt turned out great, good job on the finish! And thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )ReplyDelete
Your I Spy is so bright and cheery--not surprised that you daughter loves it! I really like your block with the hourglass in the center of the log cabin.ReplyDelete
I so enjoy seeing the various posts (you and others) about WIPs. I go crazy if I have more than one at the hand-sewing (binding) stage for watching tv and one at the machine sewing stage (with mindless tv on the background or music). I just cannot start anything else. Now lest you think I'm completely weird -- we won't discuss how many sets of fabric with thread and pattern are in plastic bins ready to be started! Somehow I'm not quite as good at my fabric diet as I am at only having two things going at a time!ReplyDelete
