I Spy Quilt

Last month I cut lots and lots of fabric to make kits for I-Spy quilts.  I thought it would be good if there was a sample quilt made for everyone to see before they sewed one together.  You have to check your color placement when you layout your quilts.  You want all yellows spread out, all the blacks, red, etc.  This can be really challenging!  I think I changed the layout 3 times trying to get everything moved around.  

The backing wasn't wide enough on it's own, so I grabbed some leftover squares and added them to the back to make it wider.  I was going to use a children's novelty print on the back, but it was just too busy and didn't really go with the front. This is what I plan on doing with the rest of the leftover squares now.

A quick meander for the quilting, black binding and she's done!  I think this type of quilt is perfect for a child in the hospital because there is so many different things to look at.


  1. This is a great example. I love the back side. Do they all have matches on the front? And you are right. This quilt will provide both comfort and entertainment.

  2. Great idea to help cheer a child in the hospital! It can be a scary place, and this can keep their mind busy some of the time.

  3. I Spy quilts are the best kid quilt ever! I especially like the one you made, one patch quilts go together quickly. I like what you did with the extra squares on the back.
