The idea behind the I Spy quilts is that you can use them to play the I Spy game.
|The finished quilt|
I had taken part in a Quilt Swap in order to get more fabric for some I Spy Quilting. I have made a cot size quilt and two sets place mats as gifts for my cousins' children. I will be going on holiday to England at the beginning of August and will be seeing them all there.
|Cutting the large squares into smaller squares|
The quilt has 70 squares, each featuring something that a child can recognize. I made it as a Disappearing 9 Patch Quilt and am thrilled how it has turned out.
|Not A good pic, but I have labels on my finished items!|
For the place mats one set has triangles of fabric, the other has squares. I was looking for some plain broadcloth to edge and back these when I saw all the Canada themed fabric in Fabricland. As they are being made in Canada for children in England I thought this was ideal. So the mats are backed with Canada fabric, the edging will be a light blue for one set and a darker blue for the other. This means that the place mats are reversible as well.
|Still a little more sewing to be done before I leave for England!!|
