Play I Spy With This Adorable Quilt!

We all know the game – I spy with my little eye…well an I Spy Quilt is basically a quilt that helps you play that game!

Materials Needed

– High Loft Polyester Batting  – White or low volume background fabric  – Backing Fabric  – Various scraps of fabric with pictures, motifs or recognizable patterns  – Pinking Shears – Heat n’ Bond Lite


I used two white-on-white fabric remnants and pieced them to make the total size of my background fabric. I cut it large so I could trim it later.

Using your pinking shears cut out various images to play I Spy with. See below for some suggestions.
