Quilting and I Spy Quilts

I Spy quilts are fun quilts for children.  They are easy and frugal to make. I Spy quilts are bright and colorful, and full of pictures that kids enjoy.

 

I Spy quilts are usually fussy cut so that the pictures in the fabric are placed in the center of the blocks. Sometimes I Spy Quilts are made out of large squares.  I've put a picture at the bottom of some of the fabrics I had on my design board when I made my last quilt. You can also a few fabric here:  Charity Quilts

 

the snowball quilting blockIf you want to make blocks, just design a grid with squares and rectangles. They don't have to all be the same design, just the same size.

 

Simple blocks lend themselves well to I Spy quilts, such as the snowball quilt block.

 

I Spy quilts can be busy.  You can throw out the rules about having a place for the eye to rest.  You want the quilt to be busy, because you make a game out of the I Spy Quilt.

 

If your child is young, you can ask them to find a picture, such as a dog or a fire truck.  If they are older, you can ask them to find something that starts with a letter of the alphabet.

 

Some quilters are very technical with their I Spy quilt.  They have a block for every letter in the alphabet.

 

Have some fun with your children or grandchildren.  Collect fun prints, make one for your little ones, and make one for charity.
