I spy with my little eye…….

Here is my second I-Spy quilt made from the same Moda layer cake as the one in my previous post entitled Another one bites the dust! This fabric had literally been kicked around the floor of my local fabric shop. Nobody wanted it but I couldn’t resist those bright colours ๐Ÿ˜€

Please enlarge the photo to get a better idea of the colours.

I made the top months ago but finally got around to quilting and binding over the last couple of days. The other one has a blue border and backing and is a bit smaller than this one. There are more photographs of the fabric designs hereย but I’ve taken some more in poor light this morning……another grey day here!!

I love all the animals and alphabets ๐Ÿ™‚ Ready for a game of I-Spy? ย The next photo shows the redย border fabric at the top with all the animal noises!

The back is bright red ๐Ÿ™‚ I quilted all over in a meandering wiggle. I usedย a rainbow thread which changes colour every couple of inches. You might be able to see it in this photo.

ย I hope you all have fun stitching today. It’s raining outsideย here ย ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Oh well, I might have to sew today ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. I saw some beautiful rainbow quilting thread a week or so ago and I thought how lovely it could look on a single-colour quilt. I think my new goal is to do a quilt all in black, with the rainbow thread. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi Ria, well this thread looked horrible on the reel but the lady in the shop took a little off the reel and let it sit on the fabric. I’ve seen it used on plain navy blue fabric and it is gorgeous as it has lovely sheen. Black would be perfect ๐Ÿ™‚

    • The fabric is from Moda. It is called Animal Alphabet. I bought the layer cake and then a few weeks later spotted remnants of matching fabrics. These became the borders and backing for the blue version. lucky find ๐Ÿ™‚
