You did a great job on the quilt. I think that I also vote for the ABC's for the back.

That is the neatest "I Spy" quilt I've ever seen. Your workmanship is exquisite. I vote chalkboard ABC's for the backing. I love how you used the black and white on the front.

What a great quilt! Lucky grandchild. I vote for the ABC's also. Use the red for the binding.

I want to do one of these some day! I agree with sandpat! Can't wait to see it finished.

I vote for ABC's. Then everyone important in his life is represented ...granny made the quilt, Bowtie grandpa, and teacher parents. I love your design! I think the size will be perfect once you get the border on and with ABC's on the back, it'll be reversible! My grandson is 2 1/2 and he loves his I Spy. I hear him in the mornings talking to his quilt when he wakes up...hello puppy, hello butterfly...even if it's still dark :)

I say the ABC's.. it can be an all around "learning" quilt from all the different pics to the ABC's. It is look'n good, let us see it when it is all done!

Excellent "I spy". I made one for my grandson a few years ago, but it was no where near this striking. I LOVE the black & white. I too am thinking the ABC's would be nice for the backing. Lucky little boy that will recieve this quilt!!!!

I'd go for the comfy red flannel and the black and white chalkboard as wide border, maybe even wrapping it around to the front. It's great!

I really don't care for a choice of black and white in a baby quilt....way too harsh....

I don't usually either but....besides needing to seperate the pictures with something neutral....
I think his parents will like it! They teach music and his mother is an accomplished pianist. That is why I think it is OK. I found some piano keys print but it had a flaw in it and there wasn't enough otherwise. Have not seen that fabric anywhere else since. I am leaning toward the flannel backing.
