A Goal for 2010


I have started my I-spy quilt!  I am putting 3/4" (finished) borders around each of my 2" (finished) "spies," for 3 1/2" finished I-spy blocks.  My goal is to finish borders on at least 25 of these guys each week.  Perhaps it is a lofty goal, but I really do want to finish this quilt -- it's been at least five years in the making!  (Or at least the collecting!!)

I've already done 20 yesterday, and 5 today.  Plus yesterday I went through my blue scrap bin (I have a RIDICULOUS amount of scraps!) and cut borders for about 30 more.  It's a good start!  And I have TONS more colors of scraps to go through!

What will I do after they all have borders?  I dunno.  Guess we'll see!  I have a few thoughts in mind, but will keep thinking it over until I have to make a decision.  So far I have different borders for every block, and I hope to continue that for as long as possible!

I'm going to keep a tally of finished blocks on my sidebar to keep me motivated!

It's looking so awesome. I think I've figured out what I'm going to do with my I-Spy blocks from the swap I did with you! Hint: It's not a quilt!!!

Your little blocks are looking good. They will make a fun quilt once you have them all done. Also, it is a great way to use up some of those scraps.
