    I finished the 2 "I Spy Quilts" for Jack & Noah due in July. I decided to do larger size quilts instead of a small baby blanket as I thought they would be able to use them longer.

    Noah's quilt is similar but a little different. I also did a 4 patch on the back so that I could use the same material that was in the front of the quilt as I didn't have enough of one color to do the back. I think it worked ok.

    Nice quilts! I too like to make my baby quilts larger so they can use them longer.

    they are adorable!!!! I really like your design idea.

    I plan to do one for my new cousin who will be born in August. I am in the process of making him a baby quilt now, well its 54" square, so it will last him longer. But when he gets a little older, perhaps for his 2nd birthday I will make him an I Spy Quilt.

    Very nice and the meandering, can I ask how your back didn't shift? I have one almost quilted but the back shifted again on me so i have creases. :cry:

    I think I cheated. I guess it helps a lot to have it stretched out on a quilting table. That is my secret. :-)

    Thanks everyone for the nice comments! They were fun & easy to make & I have one more to make for a 3 yr old boy. I've already made a baby quilt top for a baby boy due in July & I'm going to get another I spy quilt done for his older brother who just turned 3. I want to give him a quilt when I give his new brother a quilt. Then I'll just have one more baby boy to make a quilt for who is due in August. This has been my summer for baby quilts & I'm also busy trying to get our yard ready for my daughter's garden wedding Sept 6th. So it's gardening on the weekends & quilting on week nights. :D

    Okay thanks Pam my machine sits high on the table so what I'm thinking is your machine is dropped in a hole so everything lays flat. HUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM I liked how it turned out except for the creases, I think I'll try some basting spray or something.

    still love the quilt.

    Actually my quilt layers go on seperate rollers & come together in a sandwich over the table & my sewing machine sits on a little platform & rolls on wheels. The sewing machine moves & the quilt stays put until I have to roll the take up rail to get ready for my next area to quilt. I don't have a long arm machine but it does have a 9" throat so my area of quilting is only about 6" x the width of quilt....but it sure helps me & I can do larger size quilts with it.

    It's a Pfaff machine & a Gracie Frame. The machine is great but I've had trouble with the tracks of the Gracie Frame cracking after about 6 mo. of use. Gracie Co has sent tracks twice & I'm not impressed with the durability of the tracks. My husband called Gracie Co to see if they had something better for tracks & they said that it's not happening with everyone's tracks so they haven't made any improvements. I do know there was one other person on this site that was having the same problem with her Gracie frame & it isn't that old either. I'm trying to check into other materials to replace the tracking & may try some 1/8" wide thin aluminum strips when the plastic ones crack again. The plastic tracks look like they are starting to head that direction again. (Just in case you're looking for a table...fair warning). I hope to finish some more baby quilts before I want to take tracking out to try something different for tracking. Sorry...Long story... :D
