I Spy Quilts for Kids

Scraps accumulate, especially novelty kid fabrics.  The Philly Modern Quilt Guild is creating ‘I Spy’ quilts for Quilts for Kids.  In February, we spent a portion of the  guild meeting cutting and assembling 5 inch squares of novelty prints {pictures}.  Members created 9-patch blocks for the March guild meeting.  In March, I took home enough blocks to make 4 of these quilts.  I assembled them with background fabric and quilted them.  Fortunately, I was able to find some volunteers at the May meeting to bind these quilts!  With many hands, this project was easy.  It is amazing how quickly a quilt comes together when you don’t have to make the individual blocks or deal with binding!

Linking up with Quilts are For Giving for Charity Quilts and Swim, Bike, Quilt with 100 Quilts for Kids.
