It's taken me a while to get around to sharing this but it is one of my favorite projects of late.  For Christmas last year I made my kids an I Spy quilt.  A fabulous friends of mine was making one and shared her fabric with me so I really had no excuse.  It's been years since I've made a quilt and it was so much fun.  I just love how all those little squares line up perfectly and I love watching it all come together piece by piece.

This quilt has been lots of fun!

Did you see my little I Spy squares in the pictures above?  Here's a closer look:

I'm just so happy how those little printed squares turned out.  And guess how I printed them?  Simply using my printer at home!  To see a tutorial of how I did it go HERE.

We have had an unusually cold and snowy winter this year so the fuzzy fabric I picked for the back made it the perfect blanket to cuddle up in on a cold day.

Nice and cozy for curling up to watch a movie or for playing a little I Spy.

I just love quilts!

I had so much fun making this one I pretty tempted to make another soon.

Be sure to check back next week to see how I made those printed I Spy squares.


  1. I LOVE this idea! I'm going to have to start collecting squares and add this to my to do list!

  2. What a great idea to print the squares!! I've made quite a few I-Spy quilts and I've printed on fabric before, but I never thought of combining the two. (I also host I-Spy swaps every so often and will be doing another one soon if you're interested.

  3. LOVE this idea!!! Thanks for sharing via Family Fun Friday.
