Eye Spy Fabric Playing

I think I should start to call this blog the Purple Planningapotamus or the Purple Processapotamus since it doesn't feel like I ever finish anything lately - I just keep posting about projects that I have on the go or fabric that I've got.   Hopefully that will change once the basement is finished and I can have all my sewing stuff in one area instead of in the garage, upstairs, on the main floor and anywhere else it seems to get hidden around the house!  We are getting carpet on Thursday so its only a few more days until we can move ALL the stuff back into the basement (including the girls toys so they can have a place to play again....I'm not sure whos more excited about them having their own space back, them or me!).

Anyways, I thought I'd do a tester square for my Nine Patch Eye Spy Quilt since it never fails that I manage to mess stuff up the first time I do something and I'd rather not mess up my new fabric that I got from the Eye Spy Swap!

After reading through the directions again (and again and again...) at Obsessively Stitching I decided to give it a go and this is what I came up with as my tester squares:

I took the picture after I cut the centre squares - I couldn't wait to see how it looked!

Just a little turn here and there and it looks like this:

I'm even MORE excited to get going on this quilt now that I have a good idea how to do the placement of the eye spy squares.  Maybe I'll get a little more sewing in tonight when the wee ones go to bed and its just Baby C and I hanging out.

Sorry again for the missed days in posting lately - I loved the Blogtoberfest thing but during the last few weeks it seems like life with three little people and a shift working husband has caught up to me and I can't seem to get on top of ANYTHING let alone sewing.   I've got a ton of projects buzzing around in my head and not nearly enough time to get them all done (or the laundry, vacuuming, dishes, sweeping, shovelling.......).  

Thanks for sticking with me and visiting my blog, hopefully I'll be able to get back into the sewing/blogging groove in the next little bit. 


  1. That will be cool. Are you going to just put any random print in the center (like the black one) or are you going to use the same for each center? It will look cool either way, I love that disappearing nine patch. Looks like it was complicated but it's just a cutting trick :) I haven't gotten much done lately either, so don't feel bad.
