Another Finish!

I got the 'I Spy' quilt all finished today and threw it in the washer & dryer so they could work their magic. I'm pleased with the end result - finished size is about 48" square.


After looking through all the fabrics that I had received in my internet swap, I decided to use only fabrics that had a motif centered in the middle. There were lots of other pieces that had an allover design that I saved - perhaps I'll make another I Spy quilt using a different pattern in the future.


This is the backing fabric I chose - pencils all over the place.


I used a rainbow striped fabric for the binding to bring a bit of color to the outside edge of the quilt.


Can't wait till our little guy is big enough to identify all the different pictures - it'll be so much fun!

Oh wow! I have a new great-niece arriving in July. This is a great idea! But I guess it would be hard to get all the different fabrics without being in a swap. I'll check my fabric store - they often have little swatches. Very cute!!!

Oh Gayle, I just love your quilt!!! I started one a long time ago for my kids when they were little and I ever finished it. I'm just green with envy. It looks absolutely wonderful!!

Bright, colourful, educational, wonderful!!! I'm sure this little fellow will adore this for a very, very long time.

So much better than knitting something that they outgrow in 15 minutes.

I think this is the best I-Spy quilt I have seen! I love how you just used the one centered object instead of all over prints. You have inspired me :)

I don't know how I missed this post but your quilt is amazing. I love, love, love it and what a treasure it will be - I can see this being passed on for generations. I hope they treat it kindly! Congratulations, Gayle on a spectacular finish!!
