An "I SPY" quilt for Jennie's 2nd boy
I started this "I SPY" quilt about one week ago. The top went together in one day, while visiting with friends, and the quilting took about another day, and binding about 2-3 hours.
This is for dh's dear grandaughter, expecting her 2nd boy. Older brother is 6, so he can "teach" the baby. The prints are from Keepsake Quilting - "Kids Prints" and are so bright, cheerful, current, and quality fabrics, and have characters from kids books. You might want to check them out, for your next baby quilt. There are 50 squares for $13.99 - a bargain, given how cute they all are. I used 48 for this and I believe they are 5 inches square.
My quilting in the center is free-form loops and double loops (balloons), a few hearts, and several scrolls. In the border I just did 3 rows of straight lines, in different widths. The red fabric is full of alphabet letters and doo-dads. CUTE!
