Beginners and Enders….

This is my way of working on two projects at once! In one of the bees that I am in one of the members asked if we had any novelty prints that we could share. She was looking for 5 inch squares for an “I Spy” quilt. I knew I had some so as I was cutting for her I got the bug to make a new “I Spy” quilt too! I made one year’s ago but children’s favorite characters change. Not sure my grandbaby knows who the Care Bears are!! So, I am making a new one.
What I like about this one is that it will be an ongoing project, so I can work on it as I work other projects.
I will just keep the squares by my machine and put them together a little at a time!

When I sew a piece for this…….

I will start and end with these!!

By any chance does anyone have any 5 inch squares or scraps of novelty prints that are looking for a home? I also would love any characters such as Elmo, Dora, etc. Flannel would work too. I would be very grateful for your help. Thanks so much!!

Have a great weekend!!


  1. I have many novelties- Dora, Nemo, Cat in the Hat, animals, sports, etc. Would be pleased to send you some- just let me know any specific requests.

  2. I have some too :) and would be happy to share

  3. You certainly have an organized way of approaching two projects.

    When I get my stash, I will look.

  4. Hi Jane,
    I don't have a lot, but I know I have some leftovers. Email me your snail address and I'll pop some off in the mail to you.

  5. I have a couple blocks left over form my Dr. Seuess quilt and probably some other novelities.. I would be happy to share.

  6. The Thimbleberries pattern of the houses reminds me of San Francisco, where I was raised nearby.
    Sorry I don't have any novelty prints, or I would share.

  7. Hey Jane,
    I think I have some 6 inch squares I can share with you. I will check and let you know.

  8. I might have some Jane - I'll take a look. I don't do many novelty fabrics although I think I have some vegetables. Not sure how that would go over! :) blessings, marlene

  9. I'm pretty positive that I do too, I'll get them out tomorrow.

  10. now why can't I find friends like that really, Jane, this is going to be perfect for your new room

  11. Can't wait to see the progress on this one...should be darling!


I always love to hear your thoughts!
