Got a pile of novelty-print scraps? Then make this new spin on an "I Spy" quilt for the kid in your life! Pick prints from his or her favorite theme: pirates or princesses, animals or aliens. Or mix and match--make it sweet, scary, or silly. Through the Keyhole is also a great pattern for Halloween and other holidays.
The quilt can be completed with hand or machine applique; instructions are included for both.
The pattern is delivered as a PDF file, with an 8-page instruction booklet on 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" pages (print two on one standard letter page, or view on your PDF-compatible tablet or e-reader) plus an 8 1/2" x 11" template sheet. US measurements are used throughout.
I wanted to make some curtains, so my mom bought me a sewing machine. The curtains never got made, but I started quilting, and now I'm a professional quilt designer with patterns published in American Patchwork & Quilting, Stitch, Quilter's Home, and other magazines.
