The I Spy Quilt Is Finished!

 This little quilt was finished in time for Christmas!  

The backing has a wild jungle print from my fabric stash.

Since it need to be quilted quickly, I machine quilted simple straight lines.  Because I didn't want to obscure any of the novelty fabric patches, I skipped quilting them.  This resulted in trimming a LOT of stray threads but I like the result.

The scrappy border, made from the quilt's remnants finished it up.

Jack seems to like it and that really warms this Grammy's heart!

Wishing you a warm and healthy week, friends!

You did a great job with making the quilt for your grandson. Hope you have a nice week.

The straight line quilting only on the plain fabric makes the novelty patches really pop. Such an inspired idea. A most fabulous finish, Zenda. LOVE the backing fabric. Such an adorable photo of little Jack looking at his quilt his Grammy made with so much love.
