I-Spy qult for my great nephew

Thes are shots of my latest I-spy quilt for my great-nephew who lives in New York City but whose lucky parents also have a home in Long Island. So the back has pictures of ships and semaphore flags and boat-y things. This is my second I-spy (pictures of the first "disappearing 9 patch" are also deep in this blog), and I expermented with picture-frame sashing and some little color groupings. I've been trying to do a backing with interest of its own so that when the child is older the reverse of the quilt won't be too babyish.
Nice quilting by Maria Davis.
This quilt had another new technique for me: I did mitered borders.


  1. It's beautiful! And I love the Dr. Seuss stripe border and binding. That's one of my favorite fabrics right now.
