I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Over the weekend, I started a new I-spy quilt. This one will be for my youngest daughter, who at 2 and a half years old is quickly outgrowing her baby quilts. When I see her quilts just barely covering the length of her body, I realize that she’s not a baby anymore!
All this means, it’s time for a new quilt. I decided to go with an I-spy quilt as it is a great way to introduce kids to new words and ideas.
For example, in just this image of the bumble bee, there are lots of new vocabulary that a child could learn: bumble bee, bandana, antennae, stinger, apron, wings, stripes, hexagon, and honeycomb. Do you see any more? This one little square has at least 9 words. Can you imagine all the potential new words that are in an entire quilt of images like this one? It boggles my mind!
This is the same color scheme I used for my Modern Patchwork table runner. Let’s see how well it works for a kid’s quilt!
