Skidding into Christmas on two wheels...

Finished! I just finished the binding on my girls' quilt for Christmas. That was the 3rd quilt that had to get done this week.... whew!
This was my I-Spy quilt from the I-Spy swap earlier this year. It was so much fun working with all the different squares. I really enjoyed putting this one together.
These were some of my favorite parts of the quilt. Love the buttons!
and the singing pigs are awesome!
Here's the backing. I had a few extra squares that I put in the middle with a dancing vegetable print on one side and my beets on the other. The dancing vegetables make me laugh, and my older daughter will think they are funny too.

I tried 2 new things on this quilt that I had never done before:
1. no sashing.
2. a scrappy binding.


  1. This turned out so well! Congratulations! Also, the scrappy binding is perfect for an I, Spy quilt.

  2. Great quilt! I just entered my first I-Spy swap and mailed my squares out today. I can't wait to see what goodies I get in return!
