Another Eye Spy Finish!

Hello! Hello! Wow! I'm so excited to start the week with a quick finish. 
I was inspired while quilting an eye spy quilt for Nancy who blogs at Pug Mom quilts.
She used the four inch eye spy blocks from our last swap and sewed them into a 4-block.
She then alternated these blocks with a 7 1/2 square eye spy block. 
I really liked this alternating pattern and set out to do the same!
(Don't ya love those big chocolate chip cookies in the upper right hand corner.)
After reading all your comments from my previous post, I decided to make this a lap quilt measuring 58"x71" knowing the family of three boys it is intended for will enjoy using it often as they watch TV,  picnic and enjoy their various camping trips. It's headed to the quilting frame this week and will be finished with a fun "boy" pantograph soon. Thank you once again to everyone that participated in our  Eye Spy Swap this year. I'm only waiting for a few more packages before I can sorting them. 

Mark you calendars:
Tomorrow's Tuesday Archives highlights a give-away to celebrate our 200th linky party!



Remember to stop by to participate. I hope your week is off to great start as well.

  1. Mmmm, giant cookies! Now I'm hungry. This top is really cute! The big squares alternating with the little squares is a great pattern. Don't be surprised if I steal it, ha! I also thought that four patches with sashing would work well. I'll probably have enough for both :)
