    I spy quilts

    Here is one of the quilts that I made to donate, I had enought fabric to make five of them, they are all made about the same as this one, I thought a draw string bag would be nice to put it in when they were not using the quilt or just to put some of there toys and things in it..I forgot about adding a label as one of the other ladies said she did on what the quilt is and how to use it. so I just made a small paper label and put it on a ribbon and sewed it to the bag..better then not having the label on it, I kind of ran out of time....Anyway I hope the child that gets these quilts will enjoy them.
    Thanks for all your advice on making these quilt and what size was best, my quilts ended to be a little smaller then a twin size..I was so happy to make these quilts as I used most of the fabric I had for a long time, that I saved to make these kind of quilts.. Thanks for looking

    How very, very cute. Those are going to keep little ones busy for a long time. I really like the bag you made for them.

    Adorable! I've always wanted to make one but would probably need to swap fabrics with others.

    Those quilts are beautiful and I really like the drawstring top you made for the bag! Is that an original design?

    I didn't have a pattern for the quilt just used what size squares I had and the bag was fabric from the backing fabric and just a simple draw string bag.. Thank you

    I love this! I hadn't seen an I Spy with the row of multiblock sashing. My small group at church makes small quilts for babies of single teen moms. This is an idea I plan to share with them. I like making something that can be used as the child grows up. Thanks!

    I like your design too and have not seen an I spy quilt with the sashing like you have done. It really adds to the overall design. Your's is one of the most interesting I have seen. Terrific!

    I have had this fabric for some time now as I use to make these kind of quilts for our grandkids but they are all grown up now. So I started making them again to use up the fabric and just denate the quilts. I just watched for fabric and if I seen something that looked good I would buy a yard of it and put it in my stash..

    What a nice thing to do. The children will have so much fun looking at each square and finding things.
