    I've been making some I Spy's for several little ones. Some are all done, others need to be sandwiched, quilted and bound. I'm using a minkee type fabric on the back and no batting.

    love those - what a great idea for me to use up lots of my old juvenile fabric that i have had for years (used to make kids stuff with them - fun pillows etc)

    Thanks everyone. These finish about 22-24 inches which makes them perfect to take in the car, to G'mas house, etc. The soft backing makes them nice and cuddly too. I had made one earlier and gave it as a baby shower gift. 19 month old Avery saw it and the light in her eyes just melted Gram--so I got started and am having trouble quitting! I'm thinking of piecing ahead several tops and then when the need arises all's I have to do is quilt and bind.

    I Spy's are so much fun for the kids and just as much fun to collect the fabrics and make. Thanks for the idea of going for the mini squares and little items. That is a great idea for the older kids who might find the larger squares too easy!!!
    Hugs and happy spying.
