I Spy Quilt Ideas

My latest I Spy finish!

Close up of a few blocks.

The quilt back...

Finished with flannel and a few additional I Spy blocks.

The inspiration for my quilt was based on Quiltville's square in a square tutorial.
For this quilt I used 5 inch I Spy blocks.

  2. I love the stippling!! Do you have a regular machine or long arm? I so cannot do that at the moment but will be practicing!!
