I Spy quilt for my nephew

Here is the finished quilt (except for the label, in process). This is the first quilt that I quilted myself - nothing fancy, just stitch in the ditch. I used the high loft batting since it is a kid's quilt and he lives in the north, so I think he will like the extra poofiness. He likes cars, so the back is a roadway print that I hope will be fun with Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars. The backing fabric wasn't quite wide enough, so I used some train fabric from the same line as two borders, and it blended in nicely (although the lines weren't totally straight...)


  1. Congratulations on quilting your first quilt and with not-so-quilter-friendly high loft batting, no less! It looks like a great collection of I-Spy fabrics. Your nephew will love it.

  2. Oooooh! Pretty! Thanks for linking up.
