    A new "I spy" Quilt!

    I love to gather fabrics with "kids fitting patterns" on to sew some "I spy" quilts: I love to make these kind of quilts for little children!

    There is so much to see on these quilts, one of my grandsons use to have one in the car: it's like a picture book!

    Cute squares, and the yellow sashing is a nice bright touch.
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    I have made several I spy quilts and I usually make up a "quiz" for the recipient. I tuck it in (the quiz) when I give the quilt.Kids love them.
