I used multiples of 6 1/2 inches-- this allowed some large animals/ birds to be kept whole---One piece was 6 1/2 x24 1/2---- any block not making the required size I added spots/ stripes/ in your face colourful-- to make up the to the size --- many challenging I spy games ensued

I love the I Spy quilts. I just had to show the one that my 8 yr old DGS put together while he visited me this summer. It was his first time using a sewing machine! (and Yes...I quilted and bound it so he could take it home to his Mommy) There are two of each print so they can play 'concentration' while matching blocks. So sorry...having trouble uploading the pictures.

Figured I should share what I ended up with here. The front is a mix of sizes and the back uses 5" squares.

Default I think this would count

I think this might count as an I Spy quilt. I believe they are 6" squares and I used a 1.5" strips as the shadows.

I made these as charity quilts with boys in mind.
and

This is one I made with flowers. A lady chose it.

These are small I SPY's I made 4 years ago. The first one uses 1.5" squares; the other 2.5. They finish around 24" so make a great take along quilt backed in minkee.

When I first saw this design, which is one of my favorites, I wanted to see is with ispy fabrics. It makes me happy to see that someone else had the same idea.
