Welcome Baby Girl

A couple we know have just become grandparents for the first time ....... a lovely baby girl.

I made her an I SPY quilt (of course). I SPY's are so much fun to make.

Quilted on my Nolting PRO longarm with Daisies Galore pantograph. Quilt measures 41 x 46. The I SPY blocks finish at 4", sashing/cornerstones finish at 1", border is 4.5".

I did the off-center 4 patch for the backing ... thank you MARY for the FREE pattern.

About 4yrs ago I was in an I Spy swap and probably received 300+ squares back ... I personally sent in 32 different fabrics. So I can make lots of I SPY quilts. Out of the swap to date I've made 8 quilts and gave a set away to someone for their quilt. It was a fun swap.

What an adorable quilt! I also have a giant box of novelty charms. I should make a few of these.

Really cute quilt! And I recognize some of those fabrics. I've made lots of I Spy quilts because kids love them. And I enjoy playing with those cute fabrics, too.
