    Re: I-Spy obsession!!!!

    The first I spy quilt I ever saw was made with hexies - about 3". Triangles were joined to opposite sides to make a parallelogram and then they were sewn together in rows. Hope that makes sense. Let me see if I can find a picture.

    try this:

    that has got to be the longest address I have ever seen!

    Libby,

    I made my DGS one with all bugs, frogs and other slimy things and a cute girlie one for my DGD with candies, shoes, flowers, teddies, etc. I used a black background and hand quilted them. If I remember correctly I gave them to the kids for Christmas in 1999. They both loved them.

    That is a great looking quilt. Love all those fabrics against the white. Great job.

    There is a fabric store right by my work and when I go there during lunch I ALWAYS look at potential I-spy fabric. I did watch Jenny's I-spy jar and I think that I am going to have to try that for sure!
