I Spy Baby Quilt

A couple of posts ago, I gave you a glimpse of a quilt I was working on. Well I've now completed the quilt and here it is!.....


It's an I Spy quilt for baby Charlie......


I've so enjoyed making this quilt.....


....and Chris and I loved choosing the different fabrics and pictures together....


Lots of interesting things to see......lots of games to play........lots of fun!


I spy a horse.......I spy a tractor.......I spy Father Christmas!


I backed the quilt in this cute animal print.....


and the binding is red with white stars.....


When Charlie is a little older, he'll be able to recognise the pictures on the quilt.......


....until then I love to think of him snuggled up under the quilt....


.......or using it as a playmat for tummy time.......


My first I Spy quilt....I'm really pleased with the finished quilt.....


I will definitely be making more I Spy quilts for any future grandchildren!


I hope you like it too.

Thanks for taking the time to pop by,
