I Spy Quilt- Finished!

Remember when I posted about my I spy squares? I finally finished the quilt! I love it when you envision how something will turn out and the finished product is just what you were hoping. This is one of those projects. I absolutely LOVE how this quilt turned out.
I did 10 rows with 8 squares. I ended up using 80 squares and had a few left over.
For the side and back I used Moda's Hunky Dorie. I really like how the two contrast each other. ( While taking the picture my daughter was on the other side yelling out what she saw. :)
 I also tried making my own bias tape. It was a lot easier than I thought and really fun. I love the yellow and polka dots around the edge.
I also used some light weight warm and natural in the middle. It was a little tricky stitching through all those layers on my sewing machine but I really love how it turned out.

The best part? My 2 1/2 year old loves it! It's a fun blanket that the entire family can enjoy. 


  1. This blanket is really cute! You did a great job!

  2. WOW. . . so fun on your clothes line and the cute toes under the quilt make it even better. I love the fabric you chose and how it all came together. GREAT JOB.

  3. That is awesome! Any child would love it. I wish I knew how to quilt now!

    Thanks for linking this at my link party!

  4. Oh I LOVE that! I'm working on a quilt for my daughter (almost 3) right now!

  5. Love this, my 8 year old loves those books too.

    I would love for you to link it up to my party that is running now. Any linky goes.

    Come strut your stuff.

  6. I still can't believe our first party had over 300 links. I have a special give away planned for linkers this week.

    I would love it if you would grab the bacon time party button for your blog or add a link to the weekly party!

    Thanks again, hope to see you soon.
