    What size are your squares and how many rows up and down. I could count 9 across and looks like 12 rows down. I like the looks of it like that. Mine have all been made into 12" blocks and sashed, using 12-12" blocks. Would like to try one like yours.

    Thanks everyone. I don't see her often so I wanted to make something special. I will see her at my cousins wedding this weekend and will give it to her then. These are fun to make. (this summer I will probably make another one for my nephew)

    sawsan - The name comes from "I spy with my little eye..." game. and the kid has to find the item. We play this game with my 5 year old son all the time to keep him occupied (such as at restaurants) ...I made him a blanket on his birthday this year, and he loves it.

    Kooklabell - I also only have a boy, I had to order girly squares and add to it.

    sunflower126 - I used 4" squares (3.5" after seams) and you are correct 9x12.

    chairjogger- the finished size, with the borders was 44x58. good for a little one to pack around and take in the car.

    She is going to love it ! I have not told anyone, I assumed it was a surprise. Are you bringing to TX?

    I love how colorful it is. And even fun for me to pick out fabric I know from past projects. I can not wait to see it for real.
