I Spy Quilt

Now this quilt is not going to win a beauty contest…

But someone is already a big fan.

We can’t play “I spy” yet.  But the “eh?” game is fun.  In case you are not familiar with that one, it involves pointing to different pictures and saying “eh?”.

And if people do not tell you what it is, you keep ehhing until they do.  A little more strongly of course.

Super fun.  Oh and making sure the car squares are still there is another super important daily task.

Awhile ago I participated in 2 swaps for different 5 inch novelty fabrics. I got lots of great ones and I knew whatever I made was not going to be a showpiece, but I wanted it to be as pretty as possible and tone down the busyness.  While still making it fun of course.

So ultimately I decided to do a simple pattern with Kona ash as the solid to hide the love I hope it will receive.

There is so much fun happening on the front, I decided to keep it simple on the back.

With some ABCs for some extra learning and ehhing of course.

Since it was so busy, I also went with simple straight lines for the quilting.I spy quilt

But my favorite part of this quilt is his insistence to look at it every day.

And maybe even move beyond the ehhing game.

  1. I really like this one, Jenny. Very bright and fun. And I love square block quilts with lots of colors. Best of all, the most important little guy loves it.

  2. It reminds me of all the quilts my grandmother made using scraps of fabric left over from other projects. Those are my FAVORITE quilts, since I can look at the squares and say "Oh this one was part of my Easter dress and this one was my dolly's bonnet and this one was in the curtains..." I am ALMOST in love with your quilt enough to try doing it myself.
