I-Spy


Ever heard of an I-Spy Quilt??  Each square has something different, so you can "hunt" the quilt for various things.  I think it'd be a great quilt to take to sporting events, etc, to keep the kids occupied.  I recently joined an "I-Spy Group" so instead of finding 200 different fabrics myself, I found 10 and cut a bunch of squares and mailed them off - the group organizer will mix up everyone's fabrics and then I'll get 200 different fabrics back.  Can't wait to see what they are!!

Mandy - Thank you for reposting this!! I have never quilted but just participated in a scrap swap with plans to make a quilt. I am definitely going to make one of these! ~Lori

That's so neat!! I want to find an I-Spy swap group.

Mandy, I just got my {gorgeous. sweet.} turquoise-and-orange {which is really peachy-y. nice!} rolled flower necklace. I am planning on wearing it w/my {old} white eyelet dress for Easter. Thank you, thank you, thank you. So lovely.

Love in Christ.

I'm making one too. IT's tough trying to find a bunch of different fabrics though. Do you know of any other i spy quilt swaps going on? I'd love to join one if you do.

What a great idea! I can't wait to see the finished product. That would be a great thing to make for the grandkids. :-)

I love this, I hope we're in the same group!

A swap is a great idea! I bought a packet of squares from someone on etsy when I made mine. It hangs on the wall in my daughter's room, down at eye and touch level. All kids love it!

I think this is an awesome idea. Do you know where others can join similar groups. It is like a website of something?

Hi,

I'm starting an I-Spy swap based in Europe, open to anyone anywhere. If you know anyone who'd be interested, I'd love it if you could let them know.
