H2H Update

Ever since I made an I Spy quilt for my son many years ago, I've had a serious addiction to I Spy fabrics.  Whenever I go to a quilt show or store, I always look for them.  As a result, I have a pretty big selection of kid's prints fabrics.  For my first H2H quilt, I thought I'd pull out all the fabrics that have a black background and use them in one quilt.  I had a lot of this pink fabric, and it looks great together.  The picture doesn't really do it justice.  This quilt has guitars, geckos, dogs getting X-rays, dinosaur skeletons, bingo cards, flip flops, pizza slices, a marching band, golf balls, chickens, frogs at the opera, and other stuff.  Aren't these fabrics fun?  Timeless Treasures makes a lot of great prints that can be used for I Spy quilts.  I think some girl will enjoy this quilt.  It's probably way too pink for a boy! 

I've been looking for a pattern that would allow big chunks of these prints.  This pattern was in the recent Quilts and More magazine, and was really quick and fun to do.  The large pieces are 8x18", so you can really see the prints. 

Now I've got to get around to quilting it.  That part probably won't be as fast as the piecing, but I've got a month and a half!

  3. I have a lot of large prints as well. I love the pattern you chose to show them off. The bright pink works really well with the black. I know my girls would love this!
