I love fun quilts that serve a dual purpose! I Spy Hunter is a Christmas gift for my grandson. Not only will it keep him warm, but it will also provide hours of fun as an I Spy game.
In my travels to different quilt shops, I kept finding unique fabrics with amazing images. After a time, I decided to collect them to make an I Spy Quilt.
As I didn’t want to distract from all the images, I chose a very open quilting pattern.

More than any other quilt, the fabrics are the real star here. I found myself mesmerized with all the things to find! As I mentioned above, there are reasons for the loose quilting. One is to view the fabrics with as little obstruction as possible. Second is to keep the quilt soft and warm.
The back of this quilt is nothing special, but that’s OK. The back does not need to stand out.
The next I Spy quilt I create will have smaller sections. In a couple of years, my grand daughter Hailey will receive her own first I Spy. At that time, Hunter may receive a more sophisticated design as well. Who knows? Can you have too many quilts?
