Well, I did it!  *grin*  This monster has over 400 I spy prints in it.  I wrestled it through my little Brother machine (don’t ask me how much swearing I did…)

This quilt was basically made for us to sit on when we go to outdoor events.  We like going to the Jazz at the Zoo (Melbourne Zoo is one of the best in the world, and they have a midsummer twilight concert series there) and outdoor movies/concerts etc.  This quilt will be laid out on a tarp and take up lots of ROOM so we can spread ourselves out! *grin*  When we get bored, we can also look for the things in the borders (but I remember where they all are, so I’m not allowed to play!)

(2015 – they got married many years ago and have 2 gorgeous kids now!)

I still like this picture of my quilt inspectors trying it out as a WIP though….

The quilt now lives with a lovely family with 2 little girls – I hope they like it! I went to Latvian school on Saturdays with their mum :-)
