Hi all! It's time again for the blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side! I'm just squeezing this one in at the last minute before the party closes! Go over and take a look at all the great quilts on the festival!
I'm showing my latest I SPY Quilt made for my cousin Amy's new baby Brenna. Yes, Brenna is about 6 months old, but my now her Mom won't be receiving so many gifts right? : ) So hopefully it will be appreciated even more!
I'm also introducing the newest members of our family on this post - Napa and Sonoma. They are our newly adopted calico kittens!

I got the idea for the half square triangle version from Candace over at Salt Water Quilts. This is my 2nd I Spy Quilt, and the first I Spy was made with simple squares. The recipient loved it so much that I had to do another.
|Many squares already pieced!|
The binding is the red polka dot from Free Spirit Freckles line. It's subtle but pretty.
The Quilt is 37 inches square or about a meter for those of you who think metric! It's going in the mail soon, and I hope she finds all the different graphics interesting to look at, and later fun to identify!

I did straight line quilting on the diagonal of the squares all the way to the edge. Then I added a small decorative machine stitch around the inside of the blue border, and stitched around the inside edge of the red border too.
