    :oops: I'm so embarrassed to ask if anyone can help me out. I have 4 lovely nieces which 2 live in each house, my problem is I would love to make them each an I-spy quilt. I've been buying fabric and buying more fabric bought squares off e-bay just to make 2 I-Spy quilts. WHich I'm sure you can image I bought a little over 100 different fabrics but I need 100 different ones. OUCH the pocket book. lol :P They are 4" squares so if anyone can donate (or I'm willing to pay for 1/4 if I don't have) fabric it would be greatly appreciated.

    I am not at all sure what I have. But I just bought a lot of scraps on eBay I will go through them for I-spy worthy fabrics. I will get back to you as soon as I can.

    I have no kids, so am unsure what an "I-Spy" quilt is. What exactly do you need?

    I have two or three fabrics with fish - black, light blue and royal blue backgrounds. I also have fabric, black background, with chili peppers - not sure if that's of any use to you. Send me your address and let me know what will work for you. You're trying not to duplicate a block, right?

    OMG! I'd jump on this bandwagon, but not knowing exactly what letters you are looking for, I can't really help. I don't have much in the way of childrens prints, but I'd be glad to help you out. Just let me know.

    Another thing that I discovered (after I'd already collected my novelty prints) :( is that individuals have done swaps of squares on this site for I Spy squares. Usually when you buy 1/4 yards you will have enough to do a few squares from each & then have left overs. Swapping helps so that you don't have to buy as many & get a good variety. Then you're only out the postage.

    I can probably help too - I've got a bunch of novelty fabric. :) PM me with your address and remind me of the sizes, and if you have any special request (ie must start with letter P), just let me know.

    Well if you do not have enough to make 4 full I spyquilts. Then do what Pam H did and use 4 patches in between. A quilt is a quilt and you can make it any way you want. Don't worry just make them and have fun!!!!
    Your nieces will love them anyway. I think Pam H made her I spy quilt look really cute.
