    I-Spy Rag Quilts - FOUR done!

    My four Grandchildren will be getting I-Spy Rag quilts (lap size) for Christmas. These are my first attempts and I LOVE the way they turned out. I washed and dried them at the laundro-mat, thanks to suggestions from the Board! I did learn several things along the way...If I make any more, I will reinforce the joining seams, and double stitch around outside edge. I found I had to go back and do this as a couple places were starting to pull apart. Live and learn.

    Very nice. Are they flannel?
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    The fronts are all made from a variety of "fun" cotton fabrics, and the backs are two-toned flannels in a "checker-board" pattern, such as this one. I used Warm and Natural batting scraps that I got at a yard sale for $1.00

    So cute! I know the grands will love them! It's always special to kids to have their own quilt and with pictures they love, it's even more special!!
