I recently came across the idea of I-Spy Quilts when I was reading Megan and Bethany’s Blogs (the are both part of the Vintage Sheet Sewing Bee). I have to say that this is such a cute and witty way to use novelty prints. I checked out the I-Spy Quilt Pool on Flickr and some of these quilts are AMAZING!
Below are three of my favorites:
I love how “Mel Sews” arranged the prints into a rainbow to make order out of what could have been chaos. This quilt is huge and I am sure it provides the child who sleeps under it tons of entertainment when they can’t sleep. This is a great way to keep your kid in bed!
I love that this one by Krommama also has the child’s name. The lettering and the little houses are adorable.
This Wonky House I-Spy Quilt is also by Krommama and it is making me crazy!! I MUST make one. I have to admit that I am not a huge fan of the classic novelty prints featured in i-spy quilts, but this quilt makes them absolutely modern and fresh. I am now thinking I may make this my quilt block for “Bee Happy“. I have a year to collect the perfect prints and it would be done when Liam is about 1 1/2, which would be perfect. If I try to do it myself it will go on my never ending pile of quilt ideas.
Now I have MORE fabric to collect…weeee!
