I Spy #1 of 5
40 x 60
Ready to give as a shower gift next Saturday
(I just need to go buy a couple of books to include with the quilt. Books and a quilt...sometimes a stuffed animal or rattle are my usual baby gifts. )
I spy the color green, I spy something you can eat, I spy a bird, I spy the letter P...
I usually also include a couple of blocks with numbers at the beginning and end so you can find numbers. The letters of the alphabet are iron on. I iron them on after the quilting is done.
I quilted it with spirals on my old plain Jane Janome since Brother Bob is not working very well these days. I pieced together some batting and used some flannel monkeys on the back. I pre-washed the flannel since I knew it would shrink and darn it if it didn't shrink enough so that I was about one inch short in width so had to piece the backing. Luckily I bought enough for several quilts.
I had just enough of an orange solid that matched the orange monkeys on the back so used it for the binding.
