    Quickie I Spy

    Wanted to get this done fast so I went with a simple pattern. My 4 yr old grandson known as "Batman" had fun picking out the I spy charms for his quilt. I got them from the I Spy charm swap here on the board last year. He also wanted blue and green, and of course he picked out the Batman backing. Had fun quilting the assorted size pebbles in each block. I also did a large meander in the I Spy blocks. He'll be happy it's done, I am...lol Thanks for looking

    Great Job ! He will love and treasure it forever - even more so since he had a hand in making it

    Love it! Will definitely have to remember this as an easy I spy pattern to make up for charity quilts.

    The quilt is so pretty and such fun! What a special quilt for a child and especially since he had choices in making it. It will be much loved!

    I love it! The colors are so bright and cheery and even the Batman fabric is light and bright. Great job!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Great job on a very suitable quilt for Batman. Little boys just love Batman - my son - now 33 - used to live in a Batman cape when he was around 3. He wore it everywhere. It was only some black fabric that I had made into a cape with a batman symbol appliqued on the back and he thought he was just it.
