I saw the cutest idea for a quilt online, called an "I Spy Quilt". It is so fun! A great idea for a young child who is just learning words!
You need a lot of fabric scraps with interesting pictures on them in order to make this quilt. I happen to have a bucket full of scraps leftover from all my rag quilt cutting. So here is my version of the "I Spy Quilt". I think it is better to make a smaller quilt for this project as it is more of a plaything than an actual "keep me warm" quilt. This quilt measures 36" x 22".
Materials you will need:
1 1/2 yards of solid fabric (for squares)
1 1/2 yards of fabric for backing
1/2 yard of fabric for binding
1 small bag of batting
Lots of fabric scraps with interesting, fun things on them.
First I cut my rectangles 8 x 12
Then organize your scraps into 9 piles (one pile for each square) of complimentary fabrics.
Add batting and binding. For this quilt I did a simple zig zag in the ditch to hold everything together. Your I Spy quilt is done!
