    I-Spy obsession!!!!

    ispy.jpg

    So an I-Spy quilt was my first ever quilt that I made following a pattern. It required 88 different I-spy squares in which I became and still am almost obsessed with finding/collecting. I think I probably have close to 200 different ones if not more.
    Well this is the pattern that I use D9P and while I love it I am wondering if anyone else has made one with a different pattern that they like?? I've seen the polaroid block which I also love but looking for any sort of good ideas that you guys would share!!
    I am thinking of making a massive one including all the different ones I have for my 2 boys but not sure what would look good??

    That is a neat quilt. I had not heard of an I Spy quilt until a month or so ago. Everything I think of it, I think how awesome it would be to help a child in the hospital as a distraction.

        Love your I-spy quilt. I just got another layer cake I-spy from the DD. These make such cute quilts for kids and keeps them busy trying to find things. The sashing and corner blocks make this such an interesting quilt. Nice job!

            I got that same DD you are talking about!! Quite a few cute prints in there and I am excited to make another. I do have to remake my oldest kids one (my first 1-spy) due to a few ripped seams and general unhappiness with how it turned out. He is so excited to be able to go through all of the fabric and pick out the ones he would like and I will take him with to pick out the backing

                              I love Jenny's version and will be making that in my future, but another one I saw looked like a charm pack quilt in the center, and the border was a piano key border, made out of matching fabrics as in the center. It became a memory/matching game. Super cute. Yours is adorable! Isn't funny how when you get bit by the 'I spy' bug, all fabric is viewed with an 'I spy' potential?
