I Spy

This little quilt was made in record time. I started it in May, and finished today.

I can tell you quite honestly that I love I Spy quilts using any pattern. The variety and interest of the squares, the mixture of colours, the whimsical nature of the prints delight me.

My first I Spy quilt, pictured here, and on my blog header, was a very big one, made for my two little GDs. Since then I kept collecting squares, because I knew another I Spy would be in my future. As it turns out there will be several!
I've decided to make a couple for the Children's Hospital here in Calgary.

This is the first:

My helper is about to photo bomb in the right corner!

It's a simple 9 patch arrangement of 5 inch squares.

Here are a couple of closeups of the blocks. I thought I would say favourites, but I couldn't decide!

As you see, it is a mixture of older fabrics, some of it donated, and newer ones. The quilt is 60" x70".
The backing is blue swirly flannel, and the quilting is straight line double lines.

The next one is going to have a rose coloured sashing and purple backing. So much fun!
