Finish It Up Friday ~ I Spy

Done and dusted! Or perhaps done and gifted is more accurate. This is the quilt I made for E1 for his fifth birthday. Where has the time gone?

I used pairs of 117 different prints so it could be a matching game as well as I Spy.

Sorry for the sideways pic here. I used these two panels on the back.

I hate Piecing quilt backs so you know I love my boy! The map is so he can see where all his family lives.

And here is a map to use with his little cars.

Here are pics from his party.

And all tucked in later that night.

I think he liked it! ❤️

Have a great day!

    The blue you used for the setting on the I Spy quilt is quite nice. Good choice and a good finish.

    Love, love, LOVE it!! It’s just perfect for your precious little grandson. He will learn his states in the process of playing. I’m over the moon about this one, Katy.

    I love I Spy quilts!!! I usually make a double version so they can find the pairs…. I have also been known to put just “1” block of one print so they need to find that.
    When I do an ABC quilt I like to mess them up also….

  10. What a wonderful quilt! Great idea making it a matching game too. Love what you did on the backing. That’s one happy little boy.
