    I Spy?

    I am a sewing and quilting teacher. I have a student who has 5 chillin from ages 6 mo to 7 years, both boys and girls. We were talking today and I think she would like an I Spy quilt to help the middle girl with some developmental problems. I have lots of fabric for quilts, but nothing that would be suitable for an I Spy quilt. I think the 5" squares would work well, and I need ideas for designing an interesting one. Does anyone know if there are any fabric companies who have charm packs of just I spy fabric? I am retired and all of my teaching is in the form of a ministry (no charge) and can't afford to buy even 1/8 yd of that many fabrics, so need just the 5" charm squares. If any of you can tell me where I could get 1 or 2 five in. packets of I spy fabric I would be forever in your graces. They can be both male and female related. Thanks loads. Margie

    I have plenty- much is precut into 6 1/2" squares, but I'm willing to cut some of whatever you'd like. MaryQuilts.com has some free cute I Spy patterns called Happy Blocks. I frequently make an easy pattern- different 6 1/2" squares alternating with 4 patches that are all the same, then add a border and bind with multicolored striped bias fabric. I Spy's are great to engage children in conversation, can be used for learning colors, matching, and story telling, and wonderful for speech therapy! PM me and I'll get some out to you by Monday if not sooner. Is there anything special she really likes- Princesses, Mermaids, cats, stars, etc? I'd love to help!
