Who is up for an I-Spy adventure?

I am going to make a HUGE I-Spy quilt for Kelsey's first grade teacher for Christmas. This is her first year teaching and I think she would love a huge quilt to lay out on the floor for reading time or whatever for the kids to sit on. I am going to make my square very large, like 16 inches or somewhere around that size so each kid could sit on their own square. I will just tie mine and put a flannel or denim back on mine. I am wondering if anyone else is up for an I-Spy quilt so we can share different fabrics. Let me know if anyone is interested!


We made these 8 inch square quilts for Enrichment last year and it was such a good time. My girls LOVE our I-Spy quilts. Just so you know, that is when Kendal was in her head bonking stage last summer. Her head hurt so badly from the seizures and the medications, she would just bang her head, until of course, I came and made her stop. Glad that chapter is over. She told me this morning when I gave her a bowl of oatmeal "Sank you mamma." I love my little girls!

Wow -- you are one ambitious girl!!! That is a great idea and I'm sure Kelsey and you will be remembered forever by her teacher! I love the duck pond pictures...don't you just love it when your kids are so cute and getting along? And for activities....my favorite is baking cookies on those chilly fall afternoons!

I just showed this to Jacob. He is me to a T. He said "lets start now!" I agree I am getting our fabric together, will you figure out how much we need. I have no idea how to figure that out.

I would like to do it to since I
didn't do the block of the month
one. I am out of comission with
this dang broken ankle so I could
use something to do. I tried driving with my left foot and it
will take me to short distances like Wendy's or church or Smith's
I go slow so don't worry. I won't
run over your kids....
