|It's still in 2 pieces here, you just can't tell from the angle.|
But now it's done! The solid was from a 4 yard cut that was in a box of fabric my grandmother gave me several years ago. There are 208 squares: 100 in the arrow head and 108 in the shaft. It's not an I Spy quilt strictly speaking, but a fair number of the scraps do have objects in them.
I thought this would be a good project for scrappy binding, so there are 7 different pieces of leftover binding in this--hooray! The back is a large piece of minky fabric that was donated to my Project Linus chapter. Though my preference is to hand stitch binding, I don't like to when the back is minky, so I machine sewed the binding. I used a decorative stitch, though I'm not sure I like it. Aesthetically it looks fine but it's so much thread that it makes the edges feel stiff to me and I don't really like that. But overall, I'm quite pleased with it.
