I see with my little eye II


yesterday I finished up the kaleidescope quilt which I'm calling I see with my little eye and as of this afternoon it has been signed, sealed and delivered. I think I made record time with this quilt and completed the project in ten days - of course I had terrific motivation with the fact that the child it is for decided to come 3 weeks early!

the finished quilt measures approximately 46 x 52 inches, center is hand-tied with floss, border stitched with the full name of the child the quilt welcomes along with the following verse: I spy with my little eye my mama and papa, and a world of love and wonder.

top batik fabrics, back 'juvenile jungle print, 100% cotton materials.

Humm- can't imagine why it has taken me so long to find this "other you" blog! I love that quilt. You're doing well - I have a baby quilt to get done - and it is taking more than 3 weeks ! I tried to send a response to your nice comment about the pop up paws - but no joy since you are on "no reply" or something. ANyway - thanks so much !

Did I mention that I am in love with Stella? White (or mostly white)cats are angel messengers you know!

FABULOUS quilts! I have experimented with quilting, but never taken on something this big. Maybe I'll get inspired now. Do you do the actual quilting by hand or by machine?

thanks everyone for your comments!!

it is very nice having an angel cat in the studio overseeing the activity.

barbara - thanks for visiting. I do quilting by hand.... machine quilting intimidates me although one day I want to get over that fear. one day.

Dear Kim, you probably don't remember me - I'm Milan from Bratislava and I was in Cleveland 8years ago - you took me and my friends to an Amish village down South. I never forgot those days. I accidentally found this page on the web - you're doing a great job - I never knew quilts could be so beautiful. And a great blog, too. Love from over the ocean.

Coucou Kimy !
I'm just noticing that my egg picture is not so different from your kaleidescope quilt. Don't you think so ? Each egg is differently coloured and has the same shape than the others and what is beautiful, is to see them all together in the same frame
