    My I-Spy Quilts

    Some of my on-line friends from another forum sent me a lot of their leftover specialty fabrics. I made these quilts from their generosity.

    Then, when I was cleaning up my cutting area I had all these small strips leftover, so I made this one.

    I don't use a lot of specialty or theme fabric myself unless some one requests it. I love all of these quilts. I would be just like a kid looking for all the great things in them. This is one case where more is better.

    I just finished a quilt in the plus sign pattern and it just shows how versatile and wonderful this pattern can be.
    I just love them!

    Very nice. I love "I Spy" quilts. You were very creative with your variations.

    I just finished two I spy quilts, aren't they fun? I have made 5 so far and have two more I am prepping for. Thanks for the idea of the little scraps. I was going to use them as a piano key border, but I think you have a clever way of joining them and then using a sashing. Thanks for sharing.

    Those little kids are going to be so busy finding all of the hidden things in those quilts. Nice job!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Quilts like these are intellectually stimulating as well as cute as can be. These are the first I Spy I've seen in the + pattern and they're really effective.

    Charming Addition I-Spy Quilts

    Some of my on-line friends sent me their scraps of kids and novelty fabrics and I made some Charming Addition quilts to add to my guild's donation quilts. I reworked the pattern to save having to make so many seams. It also makes the quilt much quicker to put together. I made these five quilts over a period of four days.

    When I cleaned up my cutting area, I had a lot of strips (1-1/2" to 3") and so I made this quilt.

    This is my version of the block. I made the blocks out of 3" x 8" strips and 3" squares.

    The layout is fairly easy, but a design wall makes it a little easier. Sorry about the graphic, but my drawing program wasn't co-operating.

    Lovely quilts. I love making I SPY quilts and I love giving them away. My friends let me know almost immediately if a new blessing is coming to their house.
