An I-Spy and..... Finished ( or not) Friday!!!

 A while ago a friend of mine gave me this cute little I spy Quilt and said - Quilt it and donate it okay?

and I said Okay!

Then - a Client gave me a quilt and said I want the WHOLE thing Cross hatched - and I said Okay... and then I said... What???? You are not a pro at that....

and so ! I pulled this little I Spy out and I crosshatched the WHOLE thing .... just for practice you know...

and then I cross hatched my Clients quilt and I felt like I was a Pro then!! haha!

Here is the cute little I Spy:


and a close up of the cross hatching ( proof!!)


So I will bind ( oh yes I will!) this quilt and get it donated!! Get someone snuggling in it!

and now!!

Cross hatching was perfect for the little quilt, a great practice for the big one! Have a great weekend with lots of happy stitching and maybe quilt binding?

Nancy @ Grace and Peace Quilting said...

Great job!!! Now, how did you do it--panto, ruler, other?

Delighted Hands said...

You did it! What a nice job on bringing this top to life!

Hooray for "practice" quilts!!!

Linda said...

Your cross-hatching looks great! I haven't tried any straight lines except for basting the edges, and mine are very crooked. ;)

Mari said...

Cute quilt! But how do you do crosshatching on a longarm? That sounds like a lot of rolling and unrolling. But it turned out really well!

I Spy quilts can be fun for young and old and perfect to practice a quilting motif. Great job!

Sherrill said...

I LOVE that cross-hatching. You were at pro status after the first! LOL Don't think I could ever do a tumbler quilt, yikes! But yours is definitely great.

Great tumbler quilt! Good job at “becoming a pro”!

Yvonne @Quilting Jetgirl said...

So smart to practice before working on a client quilt. Looks great!

Becca // Pretty Piney said...

Oh, such a sweet tumbler quilt to practice on! So glad you had it available so you could level up to Pro status. Thanks for linking up to TGIFF!

Bonnie said...

Your cross hatching looks terrific. OOOH I like the tumbler border too. Neat quilt.

Snowcatcher said...

I can cross hatch on a domestic machine, but on the longarm??? Beautiful donation quilt, and I can't tell you were practicing. Looks perfect to me!!!

Karol said...

Looks great!! What size are the tumblers?

Hi Alycia, after cross-hatching one quilt, you are definitely a pro....and now that you've done 2, there is no stopping you :-) Have a great weekend and thanks for the link-up. Take care.
