    This is my first I SPY top. I did some closer views so some of you can see the squares you so generously shared with me in it. This one is for a younger child, so I tried to include squares that would interest him thru lots of stages and last him a long time.
    They are country folks so I'm using this piece of fleece with the farm animals for the back. It was a remnant and not big enough, so I'm adding a turquoise fleece border (another remnant) to match the critters' eyes. I have a remnant of cowhide flannel that I'm going to use to bind it all together.
    I'll post again when it's all finished. Hopefully soon!!
    Hugs and smiles

    Great job. I love how all the blocks are not the same size. I am getting ready to make one for my little man.
