    Two I Spy quilts from the swapped fabrics

    Here are two quilts I made with the I Spy squares from the swap in 2012. I received 120 5" squares. By separating them into pink fabrics and blue fabrics, I could make two lap size quilts. Construction basics? I made disappearing nine patch blocks; it is easier than sashing! For directional prints, I used the set of instructions here...

    These will be donated to the local Ronald McDonald House.

    BTW There is a new I Spy swap just listed in the Member Swaps! Come join the fun!!!

    Oh so cute! Your cornerstone sashing really makes the quilts come together.

    I like your idea of using a DP9 to make sashing and cornerstones. Great quilts that will be treasured.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Very nicely done. Thanks for the d9p pattern for this quilt. I had not heard of doing it this way before but love it.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.
