A Fresh Start

Here are two blue chickens. This completes the blue diagonal. Plus, this is not a fresh start. And I hope I don't have to remind you not to eat blue chickens.

You may have been wondering when I would start a new let's start today. But this time it isn't my idea.

A few years ago I made this quilt for my great nephew Ezra, and now his brother would like one with his name.

Happily, I already have a head start because I have lots of i-spy blocks. If you would like to play along, the i-spy squares are cut 3.5 inch square. One side of the quilt has 99 squares...and since I made it reversible, with good blocks on one side and evil blocks on the other (teddy bears and kittens), the quilt requires 198 i-spy squares. There are links to more instructions on how to make the tilted i-spy quilt under the Tutorials tab at the top of this blog.


  1. Love the design and the color - lots to look at!

  2. OMG. I kept thinking how small those blocks had to be for you to have 99 blocks just on one side!

  3. Fantastic!
    Did you applique the letters or did you just find a really really good alphabet print?

  4. You might have to remind the cats that the blue chickens aren't very tasty. Partial seams, at least 198 of them. I'm glad you already have a head start with some blocks.

  5. I would have never thought to make blue chickens, but these are adorable!
