    I Spy - so much fun

    I have been collecting novelty fabrics for over a year. I fell in love with the I Spy quilt posted here: http://happyquiltingmelissa.blogspot...-festival.html
    and just finished making my quilt based on these directions. I love it. the black fabric has little white polka dots and the white fabric is white on white with little kitties and doggies and play toys. I made this for my daughter to one day have for her own little one.

    You did a beautiful job on this quilt. It is so hard to make a scrap quilt and make the colors blend. I have never tried to make this pattern and I will never try, because I don't have the talent like you.

    It kept me amused for some time - LOL! I increased my browser to 400% and went over the whole thing. I love scrappy quilts, I love I Spy quilts. This is just wonderful and I really, really like it. Your quilt is an inspiration to me and I saved the link for a future project. Congratulations and thanks for sharing.

    Lovely quilt. Thanks for the instructions. I will be going through some scraps and start the hunt for more fun fabric. It will be fun to look for fabric as I'm going shop hopping soon. Thanks again for the tutorial.
