I Spy Pulls

This weekend I dove into my stash to pull my novelty prints for Natalie's "I Spy Rainbow" blocks for do. Good Stitches. Much to my surprise I had a lot more fabrics than I thought I did that would be appropriate for the "I Spy" portion of the quilt.

Seriously, I am not that into whimsy but I guess I do tend to purchase a few "cutsey" prints when I see ones that I like thinking that I will incorporate them into quilts for my friend's babies someday. But I had no idea I could come up with that many appropriate prints.

I looked at colors that some of the other members in our circle had pulled from their stashes and I narrowed down my pile to something more manageable using colors that I think we're thin on in our group.

I am definitely taking Aqua (flowers) and Red (Tufted Tweets) for my two blocks but I think that I might make more than the required two. I might also have to make a Blue block with the elephants and a Lime block with the Jay McCarroll Woodland Wonderland and if I have time I might cut into the Mendocino, Far Far Away II and Owls. Now I just need to find my coordinates. Remember, Natalie is hosting a block drive so if you want to join in the fun and donate blocks of your own to make these preemie quilts hop on over to her blog and get all the details. You can send her blocks anytime from now until the end of October!
