    Due to the goodness of hearts, I ended up with LOTS of I spy fabric, enough for 2-3 lap robes. I've been busy cutting squares and in another day or 2, will be able to start deciding how to arrange them; this is the hardest part for me. Do it by color? or design? random? BTW, I do have a top on my head; DH just cuts it off all the time! lol

    I did it several ways, one was put them in a bag and what I pulled out is what went next, a pattern and I also did by color background, so it's up to you.

    I-Spy is a game we all played, especially in the car..I -spy a red car..then the other kid would look for it? It is a great little quilt for kids to search for the item you call out.it is a learning tool..and slot of fun!
    i like them with a sashing seperating them, but can be done in all kinds of ways. I was in a swap were everyone signed up for a letter,A/B and so on..then you only bought that fabric that represented that letter..Z-Zebras..all the letters were covered..
    26 people, 26 different fabrics back..
    here is one of mine..

    I don't know what other people call them; I don't even remember where I came up with the term but it's to throw over your lap during these cool nights when you need a little warmth. Ususally is long enough to come up just over your waist and then a little past your toes. Wide enough to cover you with a couple of inches left over. Most of mine are about 41"X55" except the one I made my hubby is a little longer because he's quite tall. When not in use, we just fold them and lay over the back of our recliners.

    Kim, what size are your blocks? I like that effect, with the sashing in between each.
