    Thanks to all of you for your explations of th "Spy Quilt". I can see it as another way of using up those short lengths of fabric left over from other projects. I love the quilt pictures. Thanks again to all of you.

    an I spy quilt is usually made for children. It features differnt pictures within the blocks of the quilt usually done with hexagons but not necessarily. The blocks feature a different picture, thought I have seen it done with to identical pictures and also with an adult animal in on hex and a baby in another. The idea is then to ask the child can you find the...... You can find several sites on the net if you put in I SPY Quilt into your brouser

    I just made my first scrappy quilt - well, a table runner... I LOVE it... my daughter, who declares she does not like quilts (she told someone they have taken over her life - referring to my spreading out in our house!!), wants a baby blanket (she is 17, not even close to being married OR pregnant) to put in her hope chest made out of the same fabrics... I did go and buy some and then she said I had to wait to make it because she wants fabric from HER baby blanket in it and if I make it now she will have to give up her blanket (remember, she's 17!!) and she's not ready yet!! I have put that project on hold :)

    I happened to have some scrap material from dresses, shirts, etc. I had made the grandchildren from time to time. Then a friend sent me a batch of cloth with lots of wines and browns. Vicki R. sent me a nice stack of blues for sky (which I have not finished piecing yet), and so you can see it truly is a scrap quilt.

    I have tentatively arranged them on a friend's dining table. She and I worked back and forth for a long time to get the effect of sky, water, vegitation and fossels on the bottom of it all.

    I am still not sure the top is going to satisfy true quilting esthetics. I need suggestions.

    One more set of photos should tell the story.

    And finally the photo of the baby grandson who is to be the recipient. His father was our youngest adopted son--Asian Indian.

    Here is a link to an ebay auction for the pattern called "It's a Snap" that I think would work really well with the blocks you have laid out.

    Check it out!

    Wendy,

    I could not see any specific pattern for a Noah's Ark quilt at this site. I guess what I forgot to tell everyone is that I started off with the Noah's Ark pictures and sort of tried to build around that theme. The greens and browns were soil and vegetation. The wines and browns were vegetation (decayed) and possibly fossilized. The blues were turbulent waters of the flood. The actual prints were in the center and the rest sort of built around it. I had wanted a better blend, but it is sort of turning out striped. The sky (still to be done) is to have a rainbow in it somewhere, etc.

    Now will the suggestions be easier?
