    I Spy quilt

    This is what I've been working on these last few months. Started collecting fabric last year and purchased squares from board members, so look closely and you may see some of your fabric . The quilt is for my grandson who is now 15 months old. Eventually he will be in a big boy bed, so that is the size I made it. It's 59x81" and the backing is made from various fabrics that went with the blue and brown color scheme my daughter liked. I tied the middle and quilted around the borders. Not perfect, but I'm sure it will get loved and used. Just lacking the label now. Thanks for looking.

    This is an awesome quilt! It reminds me of the quilts my grandmother pieced and tied. Infused with love and warmth.
