    I Spy quilt quest

    I saw this really cute I Spy quilt here - http://happyquiltingmelissa.blogspot...-festival.html
    I would love to make it and have gone through my stash finding fun fabrics to use in this quilt. My gosh, there are so many needed. I know it will take me forever. Does anyone know a site where they would have a mix of picture fabric that could be used for this quilt? I thought about charm packs, but this quilt asks for 6 inch squares. I thought I would look for panels that had varying pictures to add to my collection. I like this quilt because the design is more complex than just the squares. Any suggestions?

    PM me, I have lots of fabrics that would do very well for an I Spy quilt. Let me know boy, girl, colors? I can find several for you in 6 inch or larger size.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    That's a really cute pattern, good luck with your collecting, she mentions it took her a year to collect all the different coloured backgrounds she used.

    Why not do a fabric trade with some of your quilting friends? We did this at our LQS a few yrs. ago and had a lot of fun with it.

    Interested in doing a trade with others too? How much fun would it be to make this quilt together!

    I love that version of the I spy. Here's the "matched" set of I spy quilts I did for my twin nephews. I have an entire box of novelty fabrics I can share or swap. I did use fabrics more than once on these, but I've made smaller ones that used a different fabric for every block.
