Default Do you have a favorite Eye-Spy Quilt Pattern for a Baby Quilt?

My niece is expecting a baby in November. The gender will be a surprise. In my stash I have a lot of novelty prints that will work well with an eye spy quilt. I would like to keep the size around 40-45". Please show me your favorite Eye-Spy quilt and a link to the pattern if you know it. Thank you "sew" much!

I Spy baby girl quilt made with fabric I bought off the board. shooting star pattern

I made this some time ago. The pattern is from quilter's cache and is super easy. I think it is called shooting star.

Another one-

I don't have a pic, but I made one for my grandson that had alternating 4.5" blocks and 4 patch blocks the same size. The 4 patches are yellow and green. When the quilt was finished, it had a pattern of diagonal squares, yellow one direction and green the other. He's 12 now, and it's still his favorite quilt to take in the car on trips or snuggle on the couch to watch tv.

There are lots of patterns out there for I Spy Quilts. If you're making it as a baby quilt, I think you'd just make it smaller. Your design depends on how much time you have to spend on it. My cousin is making one of the most gorgeous (and difficult) ones I've ever seen; one each for her 2 grandsons. (I wouldn't get that one finished in my lifetime.) They are about 3" fussy cut hexagons with little red triangles between them.

This one is cute, it's a Jenny Doan video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvqPnoiLSV0.

This one is cute, too http://www.all-about-quilts.com/joan...ns-week15.html.

This is the favorite that I've made so far. It was easy. I made it in strips instead of a disappearing nine patch, as matching was easier for me.

This my next one:

Mine is not a specific pattern, but I did put a few prints in twice to make a matching game out of it.

Here is the link to the disappearing 9 patch I Spy. I've made several for my grands and need to do a few more for extended family's babies! http://obsessivelystitching.blogspot...ring-nine.html

Ami Simms has a book and a web site with lots of pictures of I Spy type quilts.

I think Ami Simms has pretty much moved on. She still has a website. The I spy and Memory quilts are mentioned in the books section and that's about it. The websites listed in her books no longer exist or, at least I couldn't find them when I looked a few month ago.
We have an I spy swap group on Yahoo that has lots of quilt photos in the files. I think you have to be a member to access them, though. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/ISpyQuilts/info

Here is one I made for my grandson about 5 years ago. Got squares from someone on this board and added some of my own. It's made for a twin bed.
