I Spy quilt at Farmington Valley Quilt Show


I Spy quilt at Farmington Valley Quilt Show
Originally uploaded by _Jill_

Not my quilt, nor my photo, but this is a Cat themed I SPY - so it is right up my alley!

The sad part, I could do this without repeating a cat print...

The sadder part - I am too chicken to work with hexagons & triangles...

Even sadder - I own or owned all of these prints...

Oh, but the kitten would love to have this quilt to ponder over- its your maternal duty to overcome your fear of hexagons and make one. LOL

It is not sad that you own or owned all of those prints. Some poeple find entertainment in other places, my entertainment is in my fabric. Priorities, that's all it is. I have certainly heard of sillier and more expensive waste of money than owning a zillion cat prints.

Go for it if you want to - this is really an easy quilt to piece - no set in seams! By sewing triangles onto the hexagons you have nothing but straight seams to sew. The rotary cutting templates are not that expensive, and come in 3 sizes. The largest has a 5" hexagon - large enough to make the piecing really easy!

Or you could do it with squares and puss in the corner blocks.

How goes the Great Cull of 2008?

I love those prints! What a neat quilt...not as hard to do as it looks. I like english paper piecing.

Darling quilt. Don't be buffaloed by the hexagons. Look carefully. It breaks down to strips running diagonally. No set-in corners. (Woo hoo!) If anyone needs an I Spy cat quilt, it's the Calico Cat!

No big deal if you've got a lot of cat fabric. At one point, I had at least a fat quarter of each and every Jinny Beyer print. And my Thimbleberries stash was so large it had its own storage area. To each her own addiction!

You're wayyy too talented a quilter not to do some hexagons girl.

I always make my I-Spy quilts using squares, so I understand your fear of hexagons. LOL!

I love I Spy quilts -- and I started one with all those hexagons and triangles right after I first learned to quilt. Not hard really! One day I'm going to make a tutorial of the tricks I picked up, but they are not hard. Go for it!
