I'm sitting on our back patio, sipping my coffee, thinking of everyone else going to work.
I always find this first Monday of Summer to be rejuvenating.
I absorb the quiet. I adjust to not having a schedule to follow. (My husband calls this my "decompressing week") I'm grateful for the good school year had and the time off ahead.
I loose track of time and before I know it, it's 11:00pm and I almost have a quilt top made! This is the Eye-Spy quilt I'm making as a family gift for some friends that are having their third son in August. The boys are seven, four and newborn, so I thought an eye-spy they could all use would be fun.
Right now this one is a lap-size and I'm wondering if I should add a few rows to make it a twin size?
I'm thinking they could use it as a family or on one of the boy's beds?? Your thoughts?
As I get my own 4 inch blocks ready for our swap, I'm cutting a 7 1/2" square from each fabric to alternate with the four patches I made from previous swap pieces. I like the variety.
Sometimes I think I should add sashing to break them up, but that thought quickly fads as I think of our own grand guy happily laying on top of his own Eye-Spy quilt playing the game with me.
Well, Happy Monday everyone!

Should I make this one to be a lap size or twin size quilt?
