    I made this Eye Spy quilt for a friend of the families new baby. My quilting is not too good as I only sewed crosswise to form x in each square. I want to learn FMQ for the Eye Spy that I am doing for my daughter which I posted on this board. Hope you enjoy. This was fun to make

    Great job Grammie! I love the sashing and borders, really makes it pop. Your quilting looks nice and straight to me, that is where I have problems.
    What a wonderful gift. Can't wait to see your next one!

    I love how you framed each square. Such a neat idea! I hope you don't mind if I borrow it when I finally get my I Spy quilt started.

    I think framing in the black makes the squares pop. On the yelloow are little mice. They were cute and bring out all the colors in the quilt.
