    Personalized I Spy Quilts

    My friend Candace makes lots of quilts! In fact, she challenged herself to make 55 quilts in a year using 5 inch squares. Here's a couple of her I Spy quilts she's personalized for a couple of her granddaughters. Isn't that a great idea? She's my UFO inspiration! These are quilted with a fun freehand design I call Mod Flowers and Loops. Thanks for looking!

    These are really cute. I bet kids just love these. Very nice, colorful and just plain fun (smile). Thank you for sharing.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    Thanks for sharing. I've been thinking about doing an I Spy with 5 inch squares, your quilt has inspired me to start.

    These quilts are just great. I can't lift my bucket list any more. I guess in a I Spy quilt anything goes, huh? Guess what I will be doing in the near future. BrendaK

    Those are just too cute. Love how she personalized them.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    WOW! 55 quilts in a year! What an inspiration. I was trying to figure how many that was in a month...makes my head spin to think of doing that many a month. That is more than 1 a week. I love the I Spy quilts. Congrats on getting so many done.

    Really cute.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
