Hello friends, fellow quilters, and fellow "grammies",
I now have a 6 week old grandson, (my first ) ) and have made him several quilts, helped decorate his room. etc. etc., but am now planning to make him an "I Spy" quilt to be used when he gets a little older, and starts to recognize pictures, colours, etc. I have a bunch of 5" squares collected, but want to find the "perfect" I Spy quilt pattern.
I know that you will have suggestions
This year I did most my Christmas Shopping online, because I didn't want to fight the crowds, however there were a few gifts that I had to go out to buy, I can't believe how tire I get these days and I'm only 56 years old...I'm sure it's caused from back problems. But I'm just exhausted....

One was a thick felt-like material in sheet form and the other a 'rubbery' cushioning on a roll. Laminate that isn't installed with adhesive also sometimes has that echo. Again, products and installing techniques

The planks already have the backing attached: you can install it right over concrete or underlayment.

Hope this helps everyone whose been asking for more information. Glad you all have enjoyed my quilt. I will attach a copy of it as well so
Do I want to do something incorporating the State flag
or my County Barn Quilt Trail or the Blue Ridge Mountains?
