The Cotton Mill Quilter's Guild sponsored this great I Spy wall quilt for the new K - 5 school that just opened up after Christmas. While the I spy fabrics were donated by mostly members, a few of my friends were helpful in getting me some special pieces of fabric that are important about New Brunswick. Shirley R. for great potato, lady slipper, and the Hartland Bridge fabric. Linda H. for the violets, and Lee M. for the blueberries.
After the guild day, I started to sew the rows together on Wednesday. I paced myself by setting a daily quota. I wanted it done by today, Sunday. A day of rest!! Now, it will go to co-coordinator, Gwenda who will quilt it on her long arm. I have the multi-colored binding ready to apply whenever it's ready from Gwenda. I won't show too much detail right now. It will be unveiled at the school's official opening in a month or so. But I will tell you that it's long. It's 124" long by 40" high. With around 300 "I Spy" hexagons, it's perfect for the long hallway that the little kids pass through on their way in and out of the school.
Stay tuned. I will show you pictures in detail when it's hung in it's new home later on.
