    I made this I Spy to keep at "nana's house". I have taken a picture of all the hexagons and while snapfish is having a sale I have ordered 4x6 prints and will have them laminated in card size. I have been collecting bottle caps for 6 months, along with all family members. I will seperate them into colors and each player will have their own color. I will flip over a card and the first to find the hexagon puts their bottle cap on that spot. I can have them do just three in a row, four corners, cover the whole quilt, options are wide open. I am also pleased that I have finished two UFO's so now I can start my sisters quilt with a clear conscious.

    OK I have a dumb question.......Are I spy quilts used in playing the game "I Spy"?
    When I was a kid we used to play "I Spy" when going on trips going down the road so we wouldn't get bored going to Papa's house.

    Yes. My children and I use to pay "I Spy with my little eye" In the call all the time. I would often pass my turns because I was getting so into the game. That and finding the alphabet letters on road signs. Now children have videos to watch in cars. I am so not a supporter of those. Of course my children are grown so it is easy for me to say that.

    What a pretty I Spy quilt! I'll be making one but I don't think it'll be that fancy; I haven't been making quilts that long and have to work up to the more advanced patterns.

    Did you have do Y seams with that? If not, how did you put it together? I think I'll use that for my charm squares I got in the swaps on the board. I'd appreciate your feedback!

    I truly admire what you have done with the hexagons. Would you please give me a clue as to the design of the fabric used for the small triangles? I prefer that technique as opposed to a contrasting color.

    You have done an outstanding job! Thanks for sharing :-)

    What a cute quilt! And I really like the idea of the game. Should provide lots of interaction with the kids.
