I-Spy Quilts!

I'm finally posting pictures of the I-Spy quilts that I made for James and Makenna for Christmas! I read about these quilts a while ago and was itching on getting my hands on a bunch of different fabrics. I posted a while ago about how I was able to get all of the different fabrics using a fabric swap from Obsessively Stitching. Andy helped me a ton with doing all of the measurements. These were the first quilts that I made without using a very specific tutorial.

There are almost 200 different fabrics!

They were not the most exciting thing on Christmas morning but once the hype of all the toys settled down they enjoyed playing with them.

The backing one each of them:

Each individual square was straight line quilted around.

I know they are not perfect but I feel so much pride and joy when I look at them after putting hours and hours of hard work into making them. I hope that James and Makenna enjoy them for years!
