Attic Window I Spy Quilt

Ah Spring! Lots of Babies coming - to friends, not to me :) and incoming babies mean lots of quilts to make! Here's 2 I have in progress..

I started with some bright colorful fat quarters of novelty fabric, cut them into squares:

then added the sashing:

I used a slick new trick for making half square triangles.. I'll show that in a separate post. The half square triangle is what make the optical illusion work on the Attic window quilt. here's Quilt 1 all pieced together:


And Quilt 2 almost all pieced together..
Optical illusion 12

Now to add borders, Backing and quilt them!
