    I Spy Disappearing 4 patch quilts for twins - boy and girl

    My daughter's good friend just had twins, a boy and a girl. I had seen the disappearing 4 patch on the board and thought it would be fun to make them I Spy quilts using that strategy. It was lots of fun. They are in the wash now and ready for her to send. This is my 4th and 5th I Spy quilts. I have done trades on the board, plus have collected quite a variety of fabrics for these. I have a grand niece celebrating a 4th birthday in October, I look forward to making another using a different strategy. These are so much fun.

    Ingenious to combine the "I Spy" idea with the D4P! The twin will love these quilts for years to come. Great job!!!
    Blessings!

    What darling quilts your I Spy pattern has made for the twins. You have done a nice job making them & I am sure the twin's will be thrilled with them. Thank you for sharing with all of us today!!
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    I love them!!! Had never thought of using the DP4 pattern for an I Spy! Love the backing too! Is the one on the first quilt pieced or was that an allover I Spy print?

    The blue backing was all one fabric while the fronts were five by five D4P pieced blocks. They were so fun, I have decided to make another.

    What a fantastic gift for those twins. Their mom is going to be over the moon when she receives them & when they are old enough they are going to absolutely love them. Great job.

    Very perfect for the twins. The backs will make then easy to tell which one is theirs. Great idea, turned out well.
