    Fun top! Almost done...

    I am almost there on my grandson's I Spy quilt. So much fun! I used 7 inch charms. I started out doing the 10 minute block, (I tack them by hand), but decided it would be too much in a childs fun quilt. So, I alternated them with a basic 4 charm block and I really like it. (Shout out to Pink Lady for doing an I Spy Charm swap with me, it really helped!!)

    My 20 year old and 18 year old were playing "I Spy" today when it was on the floor. They like it. I did two I spy quilts before, using a Rolling Ribbon Star block. This was so nice and easy. I'm going to add a border in the white on white fabric, and then an outer border, but not sure yet as to what this will be.

    I like the 10 minute block scattered about. Looks good.

    The 10 minute uses 5 charms, the 5 minute uses 3, and only has half of the "window" when done.

    I also like the use of the two different blocks. A great "kids" quilt, no matter how old they are. haha

    What a great idea to intersperse the 10 minute blocks with the 4 patch. This has opened my brain to other creative combinations and I will need a new project soon. Hmmmmm.....
