I Spy quilt top

I've done lots of sewing and joined all the blocks.  And I had one yard of cute fabric with little fish swimming on it for the border.  It's so fortuitous to have something in your stash that suddenly proves to be exactly what is needed.  Now I plan to piece together some large leftover pieces of batting for the quilt.  For the backing, I still have some of that baby fabric given to me by friends some years ago.  I think that it must have been a whole bolt, because I have sewn it to the back of numerous quilts, and I still have some left.  Usually I put flannel on baby quilts, but this quilt is destined for the library Mommy and Me Story Time, so I thought that flannel would get dirty faster than plain fabric.

I've got to make a quilt for my new niece (her sister received the You are a Star quilt). I've been pondering and pondering, but your quilt has given me an idea.

Thakns for the inspiration.

It looks good, Roz! I'm starting a new I Spy, but I'm definitely going to mix up the orientation of the squares. I'm a rebel, I guess! Oh wait, just liberated!

Hope your A/C is working now!
