I Spy with my little eye

I am still on a roll to finish UFOs before diving into some new things.  This quilt was a "must do". I made it for a grandchild I hoped to have one day. This was years ago at our PTA retreat. I wasn't sure if I would ever get to use it, but I now have a granddaughter who is 18 months old and so ready for it. 
 This is such a fun quilt to do and a good way to use up scraps. I've done a number of them but always in a children's theme.
 I used different polka dot fabrics to bind the edges.
 I also used lots of animal and bug prints which I know Audrey will love.
 She's in love with tigers so "tigger" will be a big hit.

There is a tutorial for making this quilt on my blog, a fun winter project.
Til next time...stay warm...It's 8 degrees where we are..brrrrrr...


  1. I have those cow fabrics!! I love this quilt. It's more interesting than most i spy's out there. And the items are large enough to focus on. Good job, and done! So this brings the ufo count to zero?? whoa

  3. Judy I'm sure she will love this quilt. Aren't grandchildren wonderful? I'm needing to start grownup quilts for my crew, it happens too fast. Enjoy the little one.
