I Spy a Charm (the Matilda version)

Another quilt made using my I Spy a Charm pattern, this time using the Matilda collection by Alice Kennedy for Timeless Treasures and with alternating border colours (grey and orange) which gives the quilt a very different look from my Charley Harper I Spy a Charm quilt.

I made this quilt to be reversible so the quilting had to be something that was going to work on both the front and back.  These organic wavy lines gave the quilt great texture. 

It feels great to have this finished, it has been in the WIP pile for many, many months!
