    I made this Eye Spy quilt for a friend of the families new baby. My quilting is not too good as I only sewed crosswise to form x in each square. I want to learn FMQ for the Eye Spy that I am doing for my daughter which I posted on this board. Hope you enjoy. This was fun to make

    Great job Grammie! I love the sashing and borders, really makes it pop. Your quilting looks nice and straight to me, that is where I have problems.
    What a wonderful gift. Can't wait to see your next one!

    I love how you framed each square. Such a neat idea! I hope you don't mind if I borrow it when I finally get my I Spy quilt started.

    I think framing in the black makes the squares pop. On the yelloow are little mice. They were cute and bring out all the colors in the quilt.

    Looks great to me....

    Please don't 'down' your quilting (making an 'x')...cause the quilts are getting made and ...
    that's the way I do it now. :)

    Like the black sashing between each square.

    What size I Spy squares did you use? The look bigger than the 5" ones we swapped.

    The squares were 5" from the swap. I think the black makes them look larger.
    Thanks for all your nice comments.
