I-spy mini quilt

Our Quilt Guild Show starts March 8, and we have a mini-quilt live auction to raise money for a charity.  This year the charity is Search One Rescue Team, which trains people and dogs to do searches for missing people in our metro area.  (We had 2 gorgeous bloodhounds and their people visit our Guild meeting a month or so ago!).  Since I collect novelty fabrics for I-spies, I decided to make a mini with my 4"  novelty squares, but I cut them in quarters, so just used 2 inch squares and selected the really tiny prints.  I put them together with the disappearing 9-patch pattern, and here is the result.  I've stitched in the ditch and then need to do some quilting on the border. 


  1. Wow! Those itty bitty I-spy squares are do cute. I like how you've arranged them by color. I'm sure it will raise a lot of funds at the auction.

  2. I love this! I too am a novelty junkie. I tell people it's so I can make Once Upon a Time quilt ala Weeks Ringle & Bill Kerr, but really I just like to look at them.
