Jack's I Spy Quilt

Jack's I Spy Quilt

Our first grandchild was born in September 2007. I made this quilt for him using all kinds of cotton novelty fabric I had and purple because it is his parents' favorite color.

It was a lot of fun picking out all the different pictures for the middle of the quilt. I used many things that family members liked - fishing, race cars, sewing, dolphins, farming, cats, etc.

I found the letters for the "I SPY" on an alphabet panel I found at an online quilt store. It was an unplanned purchase, but fits perfectly. After finishing the all the stars, I wrote an I Spy rhyme and embroidered it in the border. It will give Jack and family some hints on things to look for.

The pattern is one from a baby quilt book I had. A friend machine-quilted it for me using a stippling pattern and primary colored varigated thread. It measures about 42" square.
