Ben's I Spy Quilt is Done!

We finally got Ben's I Spy quilt all tied and done. I need to add a label, but other than that it looks good and I think he will get alot of warmth and entertainment from it!
I recently read a book about Arizona quilts I got from the library. This quilt was my absolute favorite one in it. It is a corn and beans quilt. I have seen the pattern before and thought it okay, but with these colors it is so warm! I guess I am into pinks and browns because I would love to make this one and I have nowhere to put it! The maker was Alice Simpson McNeil Putnam. What a talented lady! Anyways, a little eye candy if you are in need of it.
This is a shot of the bulletin board in my quilting studio. You can see my little owl is looking over things...I added four leftover flying geese squares and perched him on it since this picture. The rest of the board has my daughter's senior picture (need to get pics of the boys up there!) and inspiration things, colors I like, etc. A few quilting pins, a pattern...and two very special things from NQC (the NewQuiltingClub) that the gals gave me when we met up in Chicago last spring. Oh and you can see my first handquilting hexagon that was done with paper piecing. It was fun!
