This is a photo of my latest I Spy Bubbles Quilt which I tried to show a photo of yesterday. My clever husband discovered Blogger had a problem with their system and has managed to circumvent it, so, here are some pictures! The quilt is 30" square, a nice size for a new baby.
This photo shows the backing, which is a recycled vintage sheet from the 1980s. I have already used some of this sheet to back another child's quilt which is in the process of being hand quilted. And there is still some left over. Very thrifty!
I took this close up of some of the I Spy Bubbles before I hand sewed the binding down.
Then I had an idea of how to use up some of the many Crumb Blocks I had been making and storing in my biscuit tin. I combined 72 of these 4" Crumb Blocks with 72 x 4" Kona solids blocks, in ash, yellow and orange.
Then I laid them out in a Zigzag pattern. Here they are:
I am really pleased with how well the zigzags show up. Now I have to sew them together, perhaps tomorrow? This will make a baby quilt to add to my stash. Several babies due this year so I should have a few to choose from.
I still have a lot of finished crumb blocks and some leftover 4" Kona cotton blocks which I hope to arrange into another baby quilt-top. Watch this space!
