I Spy a Crumb Patch

I am finally able to quilt a bit again after a lovely vacation and a hectic week!  Lately, I have been busy making...

Pickles!  Lots of pickles!  Pictured are a jar of hot garlic pickles and my grandmother's sweet bread and butter pickles.  Cucumbers are plentiful this year so I have made a few batches already!  Yum!

Also, a while back a friend of mine mentioned how much she loved the Crumb Patch Quilt.  She is pregnant and due in early August, so I want to make her something.  I really, really detest repeating patterns normally, but this is for a special person.  I had a lot of I-Spy novelty fabric sitting in a box after I completed my son's I-Spy (and a gallon sized bag...I swear the stuff reproduces!), so I decided to make a smaller I Spy version of Crumb Patch!  I will probably replace the outer flying geese with either 4-patches or just a ring of fussy cut I-spy blocks so it will be a wee bit different.

Here are the 9 patches.  I guess it is time to start the HSTs!

In other news, the batting has arrived for the Tree of Life Quilt, so I will begin the embroidery (yes, I have been putting it off) tonight as I watch TV!  I am so excited to get this one completed.  I will be giving it away in mid August and can't wait!
