I am always amazed at how much I can get done if I actually work on something. I started collecting fabric for I-Spy quilt 4 years ago and finally finished it yesterday. It all started when I saw Amy Smart's vintage inspired I-Spy quilt. I had always thought that type of quilt was too busy, crazy and (I have to admit) cheesy but her fabric choices made it super cute.

I didn't feel like I should be too picky about foot and hand placement since they weren't my own kids/husband. :)
I pulled the bag of charms out from under their layer of dust this winter and used them as leaders and enders, but last week I just decided to work on it full time and finish it up.
All in all, I still think I-Spy quilts are busy and crazy but this one is my type of busy and crazy. It will be fun looking at all of the different fabrics because while there a few I don't like there are Tons that I Love. (I'm looking at you Heather Ross, mushroom and fairy tale prints.)
Finished size: Approx. 57" x 69"
Fabric: 3" (finished) charms and Kona unbleached PFD (my favorite off-white)
