Karen from Katie's Comforter's Guild was kind enough to send me two boxes of fabric a couple months ago to make quilts from. So we used some of the less exciting fabrics, like this super soft plaid flannel for the back. It's nice and cozy and the calmer print is a nice contrast to the busy front.
There are four finished ones total that we sent off to the hospital with my neighbor yesterday when she took her son over for some testing. (Funny how a deadline can get things done...I have to other I-Spy quilts I started a lot earlier, but they aren't done since they weren't destined for the hospital.)
The kids just couldn't stay away from the quilts while I was photographing them. But I was already planning on washing all the quilts before sending them over to the hospital. We've just had too many sniffles in the house over the last month and I didn't want to risk any fragile kiddos getting sick from the quilts.
It's funny how these I-Spy Quilts all look more or less the same...and get when you look at them up close each quilt is different and so fun to look at.
My favorite way to finish quilts is by machine quilting, but since we were working on these in a work party and some ladies were more comfortable with tying, we went with the ties.
I'm excited to see what all the fabrics that come in with our current I-Spy Swap. (The current swap filled up super quickly, but if you're interested in participating in a future swap, you can go here and leave a comment with your email address and I'll notify you when we do another swap...most likely in May or June.)
Please show my sponsors some love...
